So, she has announced her engagement to her third cousin twice removed, Jack Brooksbanks. (Both are descendants of the second Coke Earl of Leicester.) He is a man who in Imperial Russia would be looked down upon as nothing more than a glorified waiter, as he is peddling alcohol without owning any vineyards or distilleries.
Березы севера мне милы,
Их грустный, опущённый вид,
Как речь безмолвная могилы,
Горячку сердца холодит.

(Афанасий Фет: Ивы и березы, 1843 / 1856)
