9781331005292: Three Old Maids in Hawaii (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Three Old Maids in Hawaii

Of the three mentioned, one was tall and one was short, and one neither tall nor short, but just such height as pleased those who loved her.

Of the three, one was plain and one was pretty, and one neither plain nor pretty, but altogether charming.

Of the three, one was rich and one was poor, and one neither rich nor poor, but very content with what she had.

In regard to the happy state of old-maidism, it may be said that one is born to it, or one may achieve it, or it may be thrust upon one.

Belinda Mays, tall and plain, had been born an old maid, and though not arrived at many gray hairs nor glasses - nor wisdom, she would have said - was an old old maid.

Rose Tyler, Belinda's niece, who was short and pretty, had achieved all the old-maidism she boasted, which was, as one might imagine, no great amount, having seen only twenty-three years. It consisted chiefly in very firm declara tions of hostility toward men and matrimony. These declarations, on the principle that good wine needs no bush, were perhaps a little too emphatic, though her evident belief in them saved her from absurdity.
