Quote for the Day: Lady Alice Hillingdon

'I am happy now that Charles calls on my bedchamber less frequently than of old. As it is, I now endure but two calls a week and when I hear his steps outside my door I lie down on my bed, close my eyes, open my legs and think of England.'

- Lady Alice Hillingdon 
(1857-1940), 
from her journal, giving rise to the traditional advice to Victorian brides by their mothers.
