Far be it from me to depreciate the "newer" kind, but I may be permitted to think it the lower. It is certainly the easier.

The satirist Jonathan Swift published Polite Conversation in 1738
The satirist Jonathan Swift published Polite Conversation in 1738. It consists of three satirical dialogues at breakfast, dinner and tea, presented as a guide to ‘Genteel and Ingenious Conversation, According to the Most Polite Mode and Method Now Used at Court, and in the Best Companies of England’. The text is full of catch-phrases, colloquialisms, slang, oaths, exclamations, greetings, farewells and all kinds of banality. Several features, such as prefacing a remark with pray, come or faith, capture polite conversation of the period
late in Swift's life, and he himself derived no pecuniary benefit from it.
But it neither deals nor pretends to deal with the whole of the subject. Indeed, the idea of Swift's character which the " Con- versation" gives does not square alto- gether well with the view true, but one- sided which it suited Mr. Thackeray to take of Swift. The " Conversation " appeared^ very. late in Swift's life, and he himself derived no pecuniary benefit from it.
