Note Relating to Cather
"The only aim of these ladies seems to have been to take each female character in the Bible, no matter what the role she plays, and prove that she was a ministering angel unjustly and cruelly misplaced upon a sphere peopled with shocking men, and that although she might temporarily be subjugated by these monsters, she would eventually soar back to Paradise in all her pristine purity, leaving man to go his own grovelling way to the gates Infernal.... Most of the remarks about these Hebrew ladies are entirely without actual foundation and frequently irrelevant."
