Propriety and Delicacy

I found this wonderful page. Nancy Mayer is a “Regency Researcher” and she has an interesting post up today! It is on the Propriety and Delicacy of the time.

There are so many crazy things that we, in 2015, can’t even imagine!! Take a minute and head on over there. See what kind of fun facts you take from it!

I will post a small quote to give you a sampling:

“Around the beginning of the nineteenth century a new literary morality appeared in England. Books once read aloud in family circles were now considered unsuitable for women and children and were subjected to expurgations.  Surprisingly enough, the Bible was one of the most frequently bowdlerized books.”
