Shoes and gloves of lemon-coloured kid. [Plate is pirated from a morning dress printed in Ackermann's Repository the month before, with a prettier woman seated in the same dress with an almost identical description, except pereline not pelisse is used to describe the scarf.]

A small Capuchin mantle of green sarsnet, lined with white, and trimmed with Chinese silk fringe, of corresponding shades; deep Spanish pointed cape, trimmed with the same.
