1 She said I was trying to marry George Dorset.
2 That was one of the Trenor girls here yesterday with Mrs. George Dorset.
3 George Dorset's talk did not interfere with the range of his neighbour's thoughts.
4 But to Miss Bart's relief the repetition of her promise was cut short by the opening of the box door to admit George Dorset.
5 They grew to sudden acuteness as she caught sight of George Dorset descending the steps of the Hotel de Paris and making for her across the square.
6 The task was not an easy one; but neither was it easy, in her long sleepless nights, to face the thought of what George Dorset was so clearly ready to offer.

13 Mrs. Trenor, true to her simple principle of making her married friends happy, had placed Selden and Mrs. Dorset next to each other at dinner; but, in obedience to the time-honoured traditions of the match-maker, she had separated Lily and Mr. Gryce, sending in the former with George Dorset, while Mr. Gryce was coupled with Gwen Van Osburgh.
