Title:
Jepson Field Book volume 15 page 174
Description:
Berlin, Germany  - Miss Lester Wright, student of the piano, home Honolulu, education California, age 21 or less, independent type of American girl but "nice", not aggressive in the least, well-raised, good connections, wholesome, hearty, taking a jolly view of existence, able to take care of herself, says: -- It makes me wroth. Why in this place a girl can't go out alone in daytime even on the street but that some man comes up and speakes to you or if its raining holds his umbrella over you and asks if he may walk along with you. -- And what about the ten thousand German girls one sees walking ::::::::: April 11, 1906  on the crowded streets? I asked. They are not "nice" (i.e. they don't belong to "good society" as we know it, they are bourgeoise. They are well or even pleasingly or stylishly dressed, but it is expected if you go out alone without a chaperone or ugly aunt that such things happen. My, it makes me hot. Of course I go alone everywhere. I have to, but it makes me hate 'em". ---------- Der Kuhfladen = Cow pancakes, literally
