Assiduities

Do you reckon my assiduities for nothing? Means, Have not all my trifling and dangling after you convinced you of my passion? Have not I gone through the usual course of preliminaries? Have not I handed you into the boxes? squired you to the gardens? picked up your glove when you dropped it on purpose? gallanted your fan? and, in short, played over all the monkey tricks of a led-lover?
