Page 147 - SPECTATOR, they will be kept within no compass. You praised them a little too soon, for the modesty of their head-dresses : for as the humour of a sick person is often driven out of one limb into another, their superfluity of ornaments, instead of being entirely banished, seems only fallen from their heads upon their lower parts.
