Context

“If by that time—and you will have had heaps of opportunity—you have made an announcement to the House in the terms I wish, I shall hand you back your letter with the prettiest thanks, and the best, or at any rate the most suitable, compliment I can think of. I intend to play quite fairly with you. One should always play fairly . . . when one has the winning cards. The Baron taught me that . . . amongst other things.
sir robert chiltern. You must let me have time to consider your proposal.
Mrs. Cheveley. No; you must settle now!
sir robert chiltern. Give me a week—three days!” source
