They dress in long white cotton coats, which it takes all the labour of their many womenkind to keep clean, white trousers, white and shapeless socks and straw shoes - no protection at all, you observe against any kind of weather. There [sic] hats are similarly contrived to offer the greatest amount of trouble and the least possible service. They are top hats with a wide brim, transparent, made of black....very expensive, very fragile and so small in the crown that they poise on the top of the skull and have to be fastened by strings under the chin.....The women wear white also, very full ungainly skirts...and long green coats....You think they put their arms in the sleeves? Not at all. The coats are worn over the head with the sleeves flapping down on either side of the face. A more nonsensical dress it would be difficult to imagine."]
