Coquettes and Coquetting never will be displeasing so long as they come to us in such unquestionable shape as in this delightful little piece of coloring. It is a beauty, in evening dress, looking at you with the archest of all provoking expressions on her sweet, roguish face, as much as to say: "Wouldn't you like a kiss, sir*" [P. 192; the word "wouldn't" appears in italics in the catalogue.]
