Dickens's Our Mutual Friend, Book Two ("Birds of a Feather"), Chapter Four, "Cupid Prompted" [This part of the novel originally appeared in periodical form in Part 7, November 1864.]

Reverting to the plot involving the banker Podsnap, his discontented daughter, Georgiana, and the "confidence couple," the Lammles, Dickens begins "Cupid Prompted" with another series of society dinners. Very quickly, however, the scene shifts to the handsomely furnished Sackville Street, Piccadilly, townhouse of Sophronia and Alfred Lammle.
