Image from The Fin de Siecle
She can swing a six-pound dumbbell,
She can fence and she can box,
She can row upon the river,
She can clamber ‘mong the rocks.
She can do some heavy bowling,
And play tennis all day long;
But she cannot help her mother,
‘Cause she isn’t very strong!
Portsmouth Herald (Portsmouth, New Hampshire) Apr 20, 1899
