The working class caught the trend quickly since the afternoon meal was a good opportunity take a break from work and spend time with friends. As the working class sat a tall table to drink their tea, which is accompanied by heartier fares such as meat pies, cakes and bread, the term “high tea” was coined then.

Her perfectionism leads her to burn her letters immediately when she makes a mistake or “when the letters [are] not spaced nicely on the page” (Jackson,1941, p.169).
