Lucia Gilbert Calhoun Quote


Picture Quote:



The gracious and self-sacrificing and womanly women of our revolution wore dresses cut lower than those of their great-granddaughters, as any portrait gallery will show. The dress is indefensible, but let us not be too ready to condemn the wearer for worse sins than thoughtlessness and vanity.  - Lucia Gilbert Calhoun
