How common is the complaint among young women, especially those of sedentary habits, of chilliness, cold feet, and other symptoms of deficient circulation! And yet how impossible would it often be—for women are usually obstinate on this head—to induce them to exchange the thin silk stocking for a warm merino one!

The Ladies’ Book of Etiquette and Manual of Politeness:
A Complete Hand Book for the use of the Lady in Polite Society
Florence Hartley, 1873




I have, on occasion, been known to be a bit obstinate. But I will gladly reach for warm merino socks when I’m feeling chilly. I suspect you will too especially if they are as pretty as these.
