9169. WOMEN, Politics and.—

All the
world is now politically mad. Men, women,
children talk nothing else, and you know that
naturally they talk much, loud and warm. Society
is spoiled by it, at least for those who,
like myself, are but lookers on. You, too,
[in America] have had your political fever.
But our good ladies, I trust, have been too
wise to wrinkle their foreheads with politics.
They are contented to soothe and calm the
minds of their husbands returning ruffled
from political debate.—
To Mrs. William Bingham. Ford ed., v, 9.
(P. 1788)
