The Nymph of slight size, with the appearance of going out alone to winter herself in a public promenade, throws her eyes from side to side to find someone who could give her some new charm and prevent boredom from seizing her. She is in a hat à la Cherubin* and a morning dress with a white muff of Siberian sheeps' wool. (1785)
"Angora muffs. - These muffs are made with the Beard of goats from Angora, the country where these animals have been for a long time, silky and overall very white; that which is used for men's muffs is of a great beauty. The price is 120 or 100 livres. One has them even for 4 louis or 84 livres."
