to come in the habit of a singing girl, a character he could easily 

personate, being young and of a fair complexion. As soon as the slave 

saw him enter, she ran to inform her mistress. The mistress eager to 

meet her lover, immediately left the company and threw herself into his 

arms, but could not be prevailed upon by him to return so soon as he 

thought necessary for their mutual safety; upon which he left her, and 

began to take a walk through the rooms, always avoiding the light as 

much as possible. While he was thus walking by himself, a maid servant 

accosted him, and desired him to sing; he took no notice of her, but she 

followed and urging him so closely, that he was at last obliged to 

speak. His voice betrayed his sex; the maid servant shrieked, and 

running into the room where the rites were performing, told that a man 

was in the house. The women in the utmost consternation, threw a veil

what had happened. Claudius was soon after accused of having profaned 

the holy rites; but the populace declaring in his favor, the judges, 

fearing an insurrection, were obliged to acquit him.

denominate the outrageously virtuous. Women of this stamp never fail to 

seize all opportunities of exclaiming, in the bitterest manner, against 

every one upon whom even the slightest suspicion of indiscretion or 

unchastity has fallen; taking care, as they go along, to magnify every 

mole-hill into a mountain, and every thoughtless freedom into the 

blackest of crimes. But besides the illiberality of thus treating such 

as may frequently be innocent, you may credit us, dear countrywomen, 

when we aver, that such a behavior, instead of making you appear more 

virtuous, only draws down upon you, by those who know the world, 

suspicions not much to your advantage. Your sex are in general suspected 

by ours, of being too much addicted to scandal and defamation; a 

suspicion, which has not arisen of late years, as we find in the ancient 

laws of England a punishment, known by the name of ducking-stool, 

annexed to scolding and defamation in the women, though no such
