“I should like to have seen a gallery of coronation beauties, at Westminster Abbey, confronted for a moment by this band of Island girls; their stiffness, formality, and affectation contrasted with the artless vivacity and unconcealed natural graces of these savage maidens. It would be the Venus de Medici placed beside a milliners doll.”
—Herman Melville (18191891)
“It were a blessed sight to see
That child become a willow tree,
His brother trees among.
Hed be four times as tall as me,
And live three times as long.”
—Catherine Maria Fanshawe (17651834)
