Bewitching Grace?

MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL [ATLANTA, GA], December 4, 1863

It is a pity the ladies of Atlanta have as little of the good taste in dress or the bewitching grace of their fair countrywomen of Louisiana. If they combined these latter with the beauties with which nature has endowed them, the Turk would resign all claims to Paradise, for the privilege of living out his natural term in the society of half a dozen of these Georgian houris.

  1. As I recollect, Julia Roberts and Kim Basinger are both from Georgia!
