"I think I may say now that I lived like a queen, or if you will have me confess that my condition still had the reproach of a whore, I may say, I was sure, the queen of whores....
... for no woman was ever more valued or more caressed by a person of such quality, only in the station of a mistress.
I had, indeed, one deficiency which women in such circumstances seldom are chargeable with, namely, I craved nothing of him."
