“Lord Godalming went to the Vice-Consul, as his rank might serve as an immediate guarantee of some sort to the official…”

What is his rank, exactly? Before his father’s death, he was the Honourable Arthur Holmwood. That form of address is used for the children of viscounts and barons, which are the two lowest rungs on the British peerage. Perhaps it is just as well that both the consul and vice-consul were unavailable. Although Lord Godalming is not a commoner, he might not have had much influence on the consul or vice-consul if they outranked him by virtue of being an earl, marquess, duke, or the son of someone with those titles.
