  Resolved Question: Help with text meaning:
I've been trying to read "Some are born to sweet delight" by Nadine Gordimer and right at the beginning there's a sentence I just can't understand, so would anyone like to clarify this one for me? A family took in a boy, rented him the spare room they had. And then: "There had rubbed off on the braid of the commissionaire father's uniform, through the contact of club members' coats and briefcases he relieved them of, loyal consciousness of the danger of bombs affixed under the cars of members of parliament and financiers." And then they talk about "No Irish" rule, while renting the room.
