The Atlantic Monthly,  Volume 12,  No. 72,  October,  1863
A First-Class Old Lady Is The Most Precious Social Possession Of A
New-England Town. I Have Been In Places Where This Office Of Select
Woman Had Languished For Want Of A Proper Incumbent,--That Is, Where The
Feminine Element Was Always Supplicatory, Never Authoritative. In Such A
Place You May Find The Select Men As Vulgar And Unclean As Are Some Of
The More Pretentious Politicians Of State Or Nation; The Variety-Store
Sands Its Sugar Quite Up To The City-Standard; And The Parson Is As
Timid A Timeserver As The Bishop Of Babylon. No Rich Local Tone And
Character Are To Be Found In Such A Place.
