Look inside the book:
I've always said you had the right stuff in you, and would show it some day; there are even signs of it in Andromeda here and there; but you'll do better things than that, if you'll only let some of the wind out of your head.
...If you like, you can call mamma 'Lady Cantire,' and me 'Lady Maisie,' now and then, and, of course, my aunt will be 'Lady Culverin,' but—but if there are other people staying in the house, you needn't call them anything, do you see?
About F. Anstey, the Author:
1 But the popular success of his story Vice Versa (1882) with its topsy turvy substitution of a father for his schoolboy son, at once made his reputation as a humorist of an original type. He published in 1883 a serious novel, The Giant's Robe; but, in spite of its excellence, he discovered (and again in 1889 with The Pariah) that it was not as a serious novelist but as a humorist that the public insisted on regarding him.
