This issue has one plate of a woman seated at the beach with the sea in the background, labelled "Morning Dress."
THE hemisphere of fashion, like the vaulted firmament of Heaven, is studded with stars that
twinkle, and with stars that blaze, of every size, and in every direction, unfortunately for that
splendour which should always distinguish our galaxy, all the planets of the first magnitude have
disappeared; and it is, therefore, deprived of that radiance with was want to be borrowed from them
and from their satellites. But to express ourselves without a figure, all the leaders of fashion are out
The most prevailing Morning Dresses are of white muslin, fancifully ornamented with embroidery; sarsnet bonnets and mantles of green lilac and yellow, trimmed with chenille of frivolité.
The figure represents a female in a morning dress of white cambric or muslin, such as is now worn at the watering places.
