¶ "Since it seems to be the fashion of certain aithors to make their male characters as odious as possible and their femaile characters angels in comparison, being possessed of some sense of fairness, I have in this volume published a few records, to prove that vice and cruelty are not exclusively the attributes of the male sex." - from the Preface.
