9166. WOMEN, Labor and.—[continued].

The women here [Lorraine] as in Germany, do all sorts of work.
While one considers them as useful and
rational companions, one cannot forget that
they are also objects of our pleasures; nor can
they ever forget it. While employed in dirt and
drudgery, some tag of a ribbon, some ring,
or bit of bracelet, earbob or necklace, or something
of that kind, will show that the desire
of pleasing is never suspended in them.—
