are much given to intrigue: and an amour is so far from being 

scandalous, that a woman gains credit by the rank of her gallant, and is 

reckoned silly and unfashionable if she scrupulously adheres to the 

virtue of chastity. But such customs are more the customs of courts, 

than of places less exposed to temptation, and consequently less 

dissolute; and we are well assured that in Germany there are many women 

who do honor to humanity, not by chastity only, but also by a variety of 

other virtues. 

 

The ladies at the principal courts, differ not much in their dress from 

the French and English. They are not, however, so excessively fond of 

paint as the former. At some courts, they appear in rich furs: and all 

of them are loaded with jewels, if they can obtain them. The female part 

of the burgher's families, in many of the German towns, dress in a very 

different manner, and some of them inconceivably fantastic, as may be 

seen in many prints published in books of travels. But, in this respect, 

they are gradually reforming, and many of them make quite a different 

appearance in their dress from what they did thirty or forty years ago. 

 

The inhabitants of Vienna lived luxuriously, a great part of their time 

being spent in feasting and carousing. In winter, when the different 

branches of the Danube are frozen over, and the ground covered with 

snow, the ladies take their recreation in sledges of different shapes, 

such as griffins, tigers, swans, scallop-shells, etc. Here the lady 

sits, dressed in velvet lined with rich furs, and adorned with laces and 

jewels, having on her head a velvet cap. The sledge is drawn by one 

horse, stag or other creature, set off with plumes of feathers, ribbons 

and bells. As this diversion is taken chiefly in the night time, 

servants ride before the sledge with torches; and a gentleman, standing 

on the sledge behind, guides the horse.
