Tobias smiled slightly, picking up his own cup and taking a swallow of tea. "Then it's decided. Of course, it won't all be fun and games, Charles. Managing a house is difficult work. You have to see to the servants, ensure any repairs are done, keep the accounts organised..." He paused, looking over to his eldest again.
He was rather pleased that Charles was so happy to be given the oppertunity. It reaffirmed to his father that he had made the right choice in allowing his son a little more responsibility. "But of course, as head of the household, you'll have time to enjoy yourself. Your mother and I expect to hear that you've thrown at least one party for the young ladies of court."
