A Solemn Appeal - Ellen G. White

Chapter 6 Female Modesty

Chapter 6 Female Modesty I have long been designing to speak to my sisters. They are not always careful to abstain from all appearance of evil. They are not all circumspect in their deportment, as becometh women professing godliness. Their words are not as select and well chosen as they should be for women who have received the grace of God.
