An excerpt:

''The glory of long and beautiful hair is and ever has been universally understood and appreciated by the world at large, and its charms are acknowledged to be among the most alluring of the many belonging to womankind. This rich inheritance from Nature is by right woman's alone; and when she wears this crown of shining strands her comrades and all those with whom she comes in contract are her subjects in the matter of admiration. ''
