Dramatic Senior Woman with a Martini“We went into a place there, and blow me if she didn’t drink nearly two bottles of wine. I was amazed; I never saw a lady drink so . . . Then she asked me to take her to some rooms. I forget the name; it began with ha,—Hargyle Rooms; that’s it, and as I didn’t mind having a little fun and not to refuse a lady, said I, ‘Come on,’ and away we went.”  Scribner’s Monthly, 1877.
