Should a gentleman be so beset, he has but two options:
1. Reveal all to those misled.
2. Adjust his actions to adhere to those misconceptions and, paraphrasing Mr. Simpson, make those lies true.
Generally, the first course succeeds only in relieving the conscience of the gentleman and can harm those deceived, especially if they were blissfully ignorant of such.
The second course is more aggressive. Although, if discovered, the counter-feint appears desperate and remiss, it also reveals the steely resolve and enterprising spirit of a gentleman.
