Lettering

This a fashionable wig! _ why its like a horses main it makes me quite a fright. ; Mr. Friz assures me this is the true botanical wig intended to be worn, by the Blue Stocking Club _ I declare I look as wise as Doctor Humbrum himself. ; Well this is the thing to be sure _ nature itself, in very curl. ; How do you like, mem, my light summer wig _ I'm told it will be all the rage.
