“It is good to go to Wood’s—in addition to a pleasing entertainment, you have the opportunity to see many pretty ladies of the metrop., arrayed in gorgeous and gossamer [sic] apparel, who look so captivating as to almost seduce us from the allegiance we already owe to a bevy of beauties that we may call our own.”
