The Hat Question In 1790.
The Handel festival was originally
given in Westminster abbey, and the
official notice of 1790 announced that
"no ladies will be admitted with Hats,
and they are particularly requested to.
come without Feathers and very small
Hoops, if any." As ecclesiastical law
demands that female worshipers shall
cover their heads in church, this regu
lation was curiously. anomalous. A
suggestion in regard to ladies' head
gear was also made by Sir Frederic
Cowen in 1905, when he gave it as his
opinion that the ladies might discover
in their wardrobe some "extremely fas
cinating flat hats," which would not ob
struct the view. The afascinating flat
hats" were, however, chiefly conspicu
ous by their absence, owing presuma
bly (we write subject to feminine cor
rection) to the fact that the flat hat
was not among the fashions of that

poet, Edgar Allan Poe. If so. an'd you
can spare one, please inclose it to me and
receive the thanks of yours truly.
To which Greeley replied:
ZDear Sir-Among my literary treasures
there happens to be. just one autograph of.
our country's late. lamented. poet, Edgar
Allan Poe. It is a -note ,of hand for a0.
with my Indorsement across the back. It
