Her hair I can but compare with a tumbled mass of gold, with just that rich red tinge of the metal which in my fancy is so beautiful; while her dress (to come to externals), though in a general sense it was that of the other Puritan maids I had seen, yet for all its likeness, it was gloriously distinguished from any other by an embellishing grace borrowed from an almost perfect and entirely adorable fig ure.
