Etiquette for Every Day, Mrs. Humphry, 1904

When a woman loses her purse, and begins to cry in the street, or a shop, or an omnibus, she is behaving like a baby.

The cook and housemaid began to cry, and my sister and I had to plunge and splash about in six inches of water getting furniture and carpets to a dry place, while the maids enjoyed a good howl together.
