Can you guess who this description is about?
A lady whom was highly fashionable, -the height of fashion- (her name is being with held!) this is her account of how both her and her husbands fortunes were lost:
(Their fortunes were lost through...) "His unbridled passion for women of bad morals, joined to his fondness for gambling."
Oh for shame! Who is this man of idle pleasures and bad luck at cards?
