‘CRUEL JOKE AT A FETE.

Horrid Boy (to his cousin). “I say Rose! Wasn’t that Major De Vere who just left you?”

Rose. “Yes!”

Horrid Boy. ” Ah, then, I think he might as well have told you what a tremendous black smudge you’ve got your nose!” [N.B. Of course there is no smudge; but there is no looking-glass within miles for poor Rose to satisfy herself.’

(Punch vol. 30 1856-62.) 

Gothic Heroine Tip: A lady should strive to always be merciful and kind, but I won’t judge you if you threaten bratty little children with your parasol.

Some trolling Victorian style.
