IN the education of moft women, more attend
tlon ha* been paid to adorn them as women
than as accountable and intelligent hemng. and
more pains taken to load that with fitnerflltons
ornaments which nature has left fnithed, than
that nobler part, the cultivation of which has been
'ert to the attention of parents, or doomed to
e(rlaflting negligence, obhcurity, and ignorance.
But let women remember, that drefi and S iery,
When hbyond the bounds of diferetion, excite
emotions which h were honourable to conceal
w tile exalted virtue joined with fenfe and know-
Irege. calls forth, from every beholder, awe and
refrlrd, the meed of noble minds. The love that
thefe beget is of that nature which alone points to
a late of happinefa, more permanent than that
hoyifh rapture which makes the present hour a
1ay or a hufy one, and which ih the certain pre-
tde to difappnointment and chanlinl difappoint-
m ant from the cha-eability of the lover, and
chagrin to I rdI that mankind cannot be true to one
fully at a time. The company of the fivolous
ndl giddy, will ever thus bring i lia along with it,
and, in fpite of any glare which may darnle the
ynihfuii eye, virtue will ever he the ornament,
and vice the h'emith of hlman life.

It has Ibten h tit'it that a woman's reading

tie ch.araeritics ti'her of an unconcerned or a
h pry mind, andl ae in fome meafiure irceftlry
to the welfare of mankind, as contributling a (hare
of the pleasures of focietv and affahility; they are
for the moit part the qualities of an open and
,infiu .tling heart but let it be remembered fuch
have been too frequently the unhappy vidims of
male artifice. The mot innocent fprightlinefs of
conduct has a tendency to put her who poffeffes it
offher guard. and perfons ofthis ltmp are often
obliged to hear many things with no freeing dif.
fatisfadlion, which in the moments of deliberation
would have tec'ted a b'ult.
It is not the gradual depravity of the mind
which ofreneft proves the ruin of the fke, hut
the want of diferetion. Few men would take the
trouble to effe fuch a gradud chance of the
virtuous mind as renters thhe fuibfevient to their
defigns, but many will endeavour to betray them
into fuch ituations as are the effect of nditcre-
tion, and which the helplefsneft of the fet ren.
ders truly diftrel sg. And how many amiable
and accomplifled women, by one lapfed ftht fort,
have been brought to embrace a life of infamy,
and to execrate that beauty and e ho1e lhrit,

which in happier days hahitamented a happier
mind. I knew Lucilla. parent. mo,'e, and
rrfreed (for fich the precept* and example of a
affeAionate mother formed her)r bult when the
came to London. and wat told that cnquetry en.
tered the lift of female accomplishments, (he allam.
ed a very different appearance. Thfte, however,
who were her advisers, fion had catfe to regret
the docility oftheir pupil,for th in nocent gaiety
expofed her to deign and elining, and ere the
was aware of her ftuatlion, fink her into difefteena
with the world, hrrfelf and virtue. So quick is
the trantltion from one extreme to another, and
fuch is the fate of her who would eftah'ih a me-
dium between d:fcretion and fo'lr, and ton In-
rautioufly wigien to MIun the ftillrg *" that leaned
to virtue' fi.le." I herereeprhate the abufe, not
the exertion of this frifihtlineft in the fair fet, as
I am convinced that the moderate ufe ofthofe
accidental ornaments will as much improve, as
the excefa will dhafe their charader.
Eager as moft women are to drefa themselves is
finery, are we to attribute this entirely to a love
,f fitch fuptrfluity I think the affertion would
he mean and neitltu. But neerfftty often takes
the place of choice. If we consider how few men
there are who place their affedions on any thing
hut the features, or the fortune ofa wife, we are
,w1 to wnlder that they. in their turn. thou'd
frive to ornament that which is mot esteemed.
ftit the'e i another powerful m-t've, I hdalmolt
Caid law, which has here no little inference. I
mean falhion. RBt fafl:on isan enemy I with not
to encounter. The numerous and p-werful a.-
vocates it hat ever hal, make me rink under
the idea. and feel m* inferiority in fuch a man.
ner as effcKually to silence me. But fallion has
fn long enthralled the good ftnfe of the oeopte of
this country, that in the common course of hu.
man revolution I think it muft loon end itfelf
and then we (hall be convinced, that in many
carft whe'e we hold our obedience peceflary,
custom i. the law of fools;" while it regulates
our drlfr, economy and nature muft beout ofthe
question while it regulates the choice of our
words. truth will have little (hare in the utte.
ran.e; and, while it enclave the heart and direda
the adtions, we may exped every ernfrqtenre
that will lead to rin and felf-repreach. Mode
ration in dreft is becoming. The heft person is
the more agreetb'e fir it. Even truth and fenfe
prevail mon when clothed in elegant lainnage
though by the bye, the moft elegant language is
every where the nift fimp!e. Simplicity and vwl.
garity are widely different.
Whether thereis more happiness tohe expraed
from a ma e of fenfe and understanding. or freo
one of an empty and frivolous mind, bat accom.
plilhed oti tCe, the can heft tell who hat learned
to diftinguilh betwixt that tranitory merit which
pleafes the eye, and that more valuable worth
enfures permanency and delight.
With moft couples, before marriage, all is rap.
ture and delight, every mile is heaven, and very
frown hell I racks, godtdeffer, tortures, and an.
gels, are familiar phrafea to expref the pleafure
of hope, or the uneallnefi of fight hbt all this
language foon ends in the fence of fatiety. or
perhaps the rough utterance of contempt. The
angel becomes a woman; the melliRuct anmtiag
of her lips becomes Billingfate, and all her fon.
nefs, if fme retains any longer than her husband
is foolery and childilhneth.
If we confder how much the aomplan yothe
ladies ferves to promote good manner, we can.
not help wondering that men ahold (o feom tire
of it. If the refpedthey command does at en-
tirely eradicate indelicate thoughts, it wll at least
preserve public decency, and the fear of offadic
them will be a curb to public llcenttloufteft.
