to matter-of-fact people like myself, an English fireside, a Scot-
tish mountain, or an Irish glen, have more attractions in this
respect than any Zenana in Arabia ; and thcs women who in-
habit them, with purity in the heart and intellect on the brow,
and a cottage-bonnet on the head, much better worth risking life
for, than all the turbaned volup'uous beauty of the East.
