Стр. 16 - Yes; egad, they are tenacious of reputation with a vengeance, for they don't choose anybody should have a character but themselves ! Such a crew!

I was more than once nearly choked with gall during the honeymoon, and had lost all comfort in life before my friends had done wishing me joy. Yet I chose with caution — a girl bred wholly in the country, who never knew luxury beyond one silk gown, nor dissipation above the annual gala of a race ball. Yet she now plays her part in all the extravagant fopperies of fashion and the town, with as ready a grace...
