Footnotes

  • "This nation would abound with many examples of female excellence, if our women were educated in a more proper manner; the chief aim of their modern education is to adorn the body, not the understanding, to polish their behavior, and teach them to hold up their head, but not furnish it with sense or improve the heart with virtuous principles" (Preface).
