Mrs. Clarke wondered if Mrs. Simonds would be dressed in great style, for she had a wish not to be outdone in that direction, and yet possessed a sufficient degree of good sense to feel that overdress would be out of place at such a gathering; so she arrayed herself in a blue silk, not over- trimmed, and put pearls in her dark hair to match her jewels.- "Dawn", Mrs. Harriet A. Adams.
