Lettering note

She says: "Molly, mind what I say to you. Lay my wig on the top of the drawers. Take care of my bosom and don't rumple it. Lay my eye in the dressing box, and the row of teeth by the side of it. And call in again for my eyebrows. Lay everything in such a manner that I may easily find them in the morning, as I wish to be made up by 12 precisely, in order to meet my Lord Ban-dash."
