English 263: Victorian Codes & Society: Home

"Why I go to Church"

"Because my bonnet is the loveliest in the village, and it is a duty to show the country girls what a really tasteful thing in dress means. Because one likes to look at other people's bonnets and dresses; and nothing but seeing could make one believe what execrable taste most English girls have!

Because Charlie is sure to be there, with that inevitable white flower and fern leaf in his button-hole (the ridiculous fellow!), and Mamma will probably ask him home to lunch.

Because it's Sunday, and it would look so strange to stay away."

from Punch, January 23, 1875
