How Women Veil the Truth.
WHEN a woman says of another woman “she has a good figure,” you may be sure that she is freckled, or that she squints, or that she is marked with the small-pox. But if she simply says, “she is a good soul,” you may be morally certain that she is both ugly and ill-made.

Aren’t women simply awful?
