It's not that I don't want to be a beauty, that I don't yearn to be dripping with glamour.
It's just that I can't see how any woman can find time to do to herself all the things that must apparently be done to make herself beautiful
and having once done them, how anyone without the strength of mind of a foreign missionary can keep up such a regime
