His tone was different from that of his friends. I could not place his accent. But it was nothing like that of Eton and the Brigade; any of the others would have known , and Mrs. Henneker might have said, that he did not come “out of the top drawer” (Shaw’s “Corridors of Power”, chapter 1)

Thank you for your efforts.
