your countrywomen who carry off the palm for handsome dressing They have the money and the taste but they have not the proper means of displaying their beautiful gowns here for Mme Carnot from some unexplainable reason does not welcome American ladies Perhaps they are too pretty and too bright On some of the old and noble families therefore falls the pleasant duty of receiving the pretty young
