January, 1799. Figs. 204, 205, and 206 in morning dresses. A lady sits
indoors upon her fashionable carpet, reading to her child. A friend reads over her shoulder.
November, 1799. Figs. 237 and 238 in morning dresses. Two ladies spend the day in the garden,
one reading a
novel. The blonde
lady wears a lace cap with pink ribbons and a thin, transparent white shawl. Her rust gown has a
train. The pink reticule matches the lace cap, but both seem to clash with the dress. Further color
excitement is added by the canary yellow gloves. The reading lady is less creative with color in her
white gown with blue ribbon trim and blue gloves. Her white reticule has gold cord trim and tassels
on it. Her black hat has a blue feather on it and has a large black veil falling down from it.
