Definition of deportment:
The lady who now entered was of majestic deportment, with firmness and dignity in every movement, at the same time that there was much feminine beauty in her features; for, although they had much passed their prime, they yet retained a large portion of those charms for which she had once been celebrated, without any of the disfiguring marks of old age.- "The Prime Minister", W.H.G. Kingston.
At the other end of the school was a large looking- glass, which he told Barbara was to enable the pupils to observe their deportment; but she noticed that he always stood in the middle of the ring, where he watched his own actions with great pleasure.- "Barbara in Brittany", E. A. Gillie.
