Cincinnati Israelite (Newspaper) - October 8, 1869, Cincinnati, OhioPublish pm Wurr four eth William my Yob is our authorized travel a Gauze platform stuck fall of Little red Dai eyes from the Center of which platform Rote a plume of feathers a full Yard High or in lieu of platform Flowers and feathers there was sometimes a Fly a Cap or a Wing Cap Ora Pouf. If any one happens to have an old pocket Book for 1780, a single glance at the plate of fashionable Heads for that year will convey a More competent idea of the same than 1, unknowing in the terms of Art can produce by the most elaborate description. Suffice it for me to observe that in comparison with this head dress to which in my liberality and respect for departed fashion i forbear to fix any of the Many epithets which present themselves the Spanish dress and Vail worn by miss Mont Nero associated As it was with painting and poetry did certainly appear to me More picturesque and Graceful. A a in favor of the Vail i had All the poets from Homer and Hesiod downward on my Side and moreover i was backed by the opinion of the Wisest of men who has pronounced that u a Vail to armed with such authority and inspired by love i battled stoutly with lady Anne upon several occasions especially one night when we met at the pantheon.
