ABSTRACT

I ONCE heard of a meritorious lady who was extremely conventional; on the slender grounds of carefully acquired habits of preferring the word " woman " to the word " lady " and of going to the post-office without a hat, imagined that she was unconventional and altogether a remarkable person ; and who once remarked with great satisfaction that she was a " very queer person," and that nothing shocked her " except, of course, bad form."
