Excerpt from Cecil Castlemaine's Gage: And Other Novelettes So she would put them all aside and turn the tables on her friends, and go on her own way, proud, peerless, Cecil Castlemaine, conquering and unconquered; and Steele must have had her name in his thoughts, and honoured it heartily and sincerely, when he wrote one Tuesday, on the 2 mt of October, under the domino of his Church Coquette, I say I do honour to those who can be coquettes and are not suck, but I despise all who would be so, and, in despair of arriving at it themselves, hate and villify all those who can. A definition justly drawn by his keen, quick graver, though doubtless it only excited the ire of, and was entirely lost upon, those who read the paper over their dish of bohea, or oiler their toilette, while they shifted a patch for an hour before they could determine it, or regretted the loss of ten guineas at crimp.
