Excerpt from My Lady's Dressing Room: Adapted From the French
The Baroness Staffe has written this book for French women. I have translated it and adapted and edited it for the women of America. If there were virtue in plainness, the world ought to be very much better than it... is but the classic proverb to the effect that Comeliness recommends Virtue is true. Mortals are led by appearances, and the more beautiful good women are, the better equipped they will be to guide aright a world whose future depends upon the worth of its mothers and daughters.
