Marian went to see a languid Mr. worth to purchase a new gown. “He was standing pensively by the window in a long puce-colored dressing gown with two exquisite black spaniels—twins—sitting on two eco-friendly velvet chairs. This is what he wants me to have: the primary gown gold color, the velvet only to lay the lace on as well as at the bottom in front. I have ended up being tired with the concept of getting any type of new gowns, however Henry says, ‘People who research study Greek should take pains with their dress.'”
from Henry Adams: A Biography.
Marian is Marian Adams, Henry’s other half (also understood as “Clover”). Marian dedicated suicide in 1885. I’m scared to state that Henry Adams, for all his scholarship, sounded rather challenging to online with as well as a prime example of the type of guy who believes women make fine ornaments or pets, however are definitely not people. The statue above is the memorial Henry had developed in rock Creek Cemetery; click on the picture to checked out much more about Marian as well as the memorial——both are extremely interesting.
