Our Drawing Room

Two correspondents, who write very badly - in blue ink - and if possible spell still worse, address us on the subject of matrimony. They want to make the leap through the golden hoop, and consider that if their wishes were made known in the "drawing-room," there would be no difficulty about it. We decline to have anything to do with it; and we advise both young ladies to improve their education, and to try to exercise some share of modesty and good sense.
Taken from the regular feature "Our Drawing Room" where correspondents queries are answered. The Young Englishwoman, January, 1867.
