Excerpt: ?IT IS VERY KIND in the dear mother.? ?But--what, Rachel? Don?t you like it! She so enjoyed choosing it for you.? ?Oh yes, it is a perfect thing in its way. Don?t say a word to her; but if you are consulted for my next birthday present, Grace, couldn?t you suggest that one does cease to be a girl.? ?Only try it on, Rachel dear, she will be pleased to see you in it.? ?Oh yes, I will bedizen myself to oblige her. I do assure you I am not ungrateful. It is beautiful in itself, and shows how well nature can be imitated; but it is meant for a mere girl, and this is the very day I had fixed for hauling down the flag of youth.?
