This lady was going to the new, or reformed church, and in the dress u su ail y worn on tbat occasion, that is, a black lace hood over her cap, both of whicb are pinned under the chin ; ber silk gown of the colour, which, it has been observed, they wear oftener than any other, and ber cloak english.

We have a rather mild weather outfit here - on the Temple Road you would think this lady would be wearing a coat - but it is possible that she is just getting out of a carriage stopped in front of the gate. (Editor's notes)
