Schott's Miscellany 7 August 2009

As a decoration for soldiers wounded in battle, George Washington created the Order of the Purple Heart (1782)


ON WOMEN RIDING SIDE-SADDLE

All women, of all ages and shapes, still look better side-saddle than ever they can astride. That's my opinion, and I stick to it. Granted, a girl with a lovely figure looks really ravishing in well-made boots and breeches, astride a beautifully turned out blood-horse; but she would look even more ravishing were she to ride the same creature side-saddle, with a well-cut London habit and a silk hat.

---D.W.E. Brock, MFH, Introduction to Foxhunting, 1954


Arms alone are not enough to keep the peace. It must be kept by men.
John F. Kennedy (1917-63)
