A valet's duties

This comes from a fun blog call Jane Austen's World. If you've wondered what Jeeves is supposed to do, other than get Bertie Wooster out of trouble, now you know. 'The valet (rhymes with pallet) is a personal manservant who tends to his master’s every need, from a clean room to seeing to his clothes to making sure that his entire day goes smoothly from the moment he rises to the time he goes to bed. Also known as a gentleman’s gentleman, the valet is the closest male equivalent to a lady’s maid.' More... Via.
