Mr.Moshua Freeman, a prorni- nerit citMeri hefe during the latter part o f the last century, thus describes ac­ cording tn'Willis, the dress he wore when he went a courtingin 1750.

This surpasses any foppery o f the present The ladies were by no means behind the other sex In their finery. They in­ dulged in high head-dresses, stomach­ ers, brocade-go}vns, with ruffles, at the elbows arid necks, and scarlet or crim­ son cloaks.
