Augusta Jane Evans, ST. ELMO, New York, G. W. Carleton & Co., 1867, 571 pages.

While aware of the prejudice that exists against literary women, she endeavored to avoid the outré idiosyncrasies that justly render so many of that class unpopular and ridiculous.         She felt that she was a target at which all observers aimed random shafts; and while devoting herself to study, she endeavored to give due attention to the rules of etiquette, and the harmonious laws of the toilette.

p. 468
