Dorʹicourt

.

A sort of Tremaine of the eighteenth century, who, having over-refined his taste by the “grand tour,” considers English beauties insipid. He falls in love with Letitia Hardy at a masquerade, after feeling aversion to her in her assumed character of a hoyden. (Mrs. Cowley The Belle’s Stratagem.)
