"I was very lucky in my gloves--got them at the first shop I went to...and gave only four shillings for them; upon hearing which everybody at Chawton will be hoping and predicting that they cannot be good for anything, and their worth certainly remains to be proved; but I think they look very well." Jane Austen, 1813
