Sexy women want sex tonight Merriam A few years ago two single- horse chairs were imported from Boston, to the great offence of these prudent citizens; nothing appeared to them more culpable than the use of such gaudy painted vehicles, in contempt of the more useful and more simple single-horse carts of their fathers. This piece of extravagant and unknown luxury almost caused a schism, and set every tongue a-going; some predicted the approaching ruin of those families that had imported them; others feared the dangers of example; never since the foundation of the town had there happened anything which so much alarmed this primitive community.
One of the possessors of these profane chairs, filled with repentance, wisely sent it back to the continent; the other, more obstinate and perverse, in defiance to all remonstrances, persisted in the use of his chair until by degrees they became more reconciled to it; though I observed that the wealthiest and the most respectable people still go to meeting or to their farms in a single-horse cart with a decent awning fixed over it: indeed, if you consider their sandy soil, and the badness of their ro, these appear to be the best contrived Horny girls Ranson West Virginia for this island.

I must confess, that I have never seen more ingenuity in the use of the knife; thus the most idle moments of their lives become usefully employed.

They have showed Adult ready friendship Phoenix Arizona a variety of little bowls and other implements, executed cooper-wise, with the greatest neatness and elegance. You will be pleased to remember they are all brought up to the trade of coopers, be their future intentions or fortunes what they may; therefore almost every man in this island has always two knives in his pocket, one much larger than the other; and though they hold everything that is called fashion in the utmost contempt, yet they are as difficult to please, and as extravagant in the choice and price of their knives, as any young buck in Boston would be about his hat, buckles, or coat.

As the sea excursions are often very long, their wives in their absence are necessarily obliged to transact business, to settle s, and in short, to rule and provide for their families. These circumstances being often repeated, give women the abilities as well as a taste for that kind of superintendency, to which, by their prudence and good management, they seem to be in general very equal.
This employment ripens their judgment, and justly entitles them to a rank superior to that of other wives; and this is the principal reason why those of Nantucket as well as those of Montreal [Footnote: Most of the merchants and young men of Montreal spend the Lady want real sex AR Okolona 71962 part of their time in trading with the Indians, at Mobile sex finder Cook Islands amazing distance from Canada; and it often happens that they are three years together absent from home.
The men at their return, weary with the fatigues of the sea, full of confidence and love, cheerfully give their consent to every transaction that has happened during their absence, and all is joy and peace.
What would the men do without the agency of these faithful mates?

When the good man of the house Wife looking sex Toledo from his labour, he peaceably goes after his wife and brings her home; meanwhile the young fellows, equally vigilant, easily find out which is the most convenient house, and there they assemble with the girls of the neighbourhood.
Instead of cards, musical instruments, or songs, they relate stories of their whaling voyages, their various sea adventures, and talk of the different coasts and people they have visited.

Who among us is not glad it is not so here? The Nantucket girls and boys beat the world. As inebriation is unknown, and music, singing, and dancing, are Housewives looking sex tonight Spartanburg South Carolina in equal detestation, they never could fill all the vacant hours of their lives without the repast of the table.
Thus these young people sit and talk, and divert themselves as well as they can; if any one has lately returned from a cruise, he is generally the speaker of the night; they often all laugh and talk together, but they are happy, and would not exchange their pleasures for those of the most brilliant assemblies in Europe.

This lasts until the father and mother return; Lonely Winnemucca fucking married all retire to their respective homes, the men re-conducting the partners of their affections. Thus they spend many of the youthful evenings of their lives; no wonder therefore, that they marry so early.
But no sooner have they undergone this ceremony than John Hermiston girls cease to appear so cheerful and gay; the new rank they hold in the society impresses them with more serious ideas than were entertained.

The richest person now in the island owes all his present prosperity and success to the ingenuity of his wife: this is a known fact which is well recorded; for while he was performing his first cruises, she traded with pins and needles, and kept a school.
Afterward she purchased more considerable articles, which she sold with so much judgment, that she laid the foundation of a system of business, that she has ever since prosecuted with equal dexterity and success.
