Grâce à Chiffonette,
"He hoped she might make some amends for the very plein faces he was continually passing in the streets. The worst of Bath was the number of its plain women. He did not mean to say that there were no pretty women, but the number of the plain was out of all proportion. He had frequently observed, as he walked, that one handsome face would be followed by thirty, or five-and-thirty frights; and once, as he had stood in a shop on Bond street, he had counted eighty-seven women go by, one after another, without there being a tolerable face among them. It had been a frosty morning, to be sure, a sharp frost, wich hardly one woman in a thousand could stand the test of. But still, there certainly were a dreadful multitude of ugly women in bath."
Persuasion - Jane Austen - 1814
