Lady Noggs, Peeress  (1905) 
by Edgar Jepson
McClure, Philips & Co., New York, 1905. Filmed in 1920.

From a review in the Bookman, 1906: "Has the Prime Minister a niece?" That, undoubtedly, will be our question in the future, when Prime Ministers are committing deeds which, in our opinion, are inexplicable and mistaken. Mr. Edgar Jepson has sketched for us with his pen some quite everyday pictures in the home-life of Lord Errington, Prime Minister. In Lord Errington's home-life. Lady Felicia Grandison (Lady Noggs to her familiars) is undeniably an influence, and such an influence that even his political enemies might allow that to Lord Errington much might be forgiven. She has a Sir Joshua Reynolds face, and a fiendish instinct for getting into mischief and brazening it out. [...] For the future, as we said before, when things in Parliament distress us, we shall sigh with tolerance, and murmur "cherchez la niece."
