From Letters for Literary Ladies: to which is added, An Essay on the Noble Science of Self Justification, by Maria Edgeworth


"Literary ladies will, I am afraid, be losers in love as well as in friendship, by their superiority. -- Cupid is a timid, playful child, and is frightened at the helmet of Minerva."

From Letter from a Gentleman to His Friend, Upon the Birth of a Daughter.
