CONCLUDING REMARKS

thus importuned, the girl should give replies by shakes of the head, but 

if she quarrelled with the man she should not even do that. When she is 

asked by the man whether she wishes for him, and whether she likes him, 

she should remain silent for a long time, and when at last importuned to 

reply, should give him a favourable answer by a nod of the head. If the 

man is previously acquainted with the girl he should converse with her 

by means of a female friend, who may be favourable to him, and in the 

confidence of both, and carry on the conversation on both sides. On such 

an occasion the girl should smile with her head bent down, and if the 

female friend say more on her part than she was desired to do, she 

should chide her and dispute with her. The female friend should say in 

jest even what she is not desired to say by the girl, and add, "she says 

so," on which the girl should say indistinctly and prettily, "O no! I 

did not say so," and she should then smile and throw an occasional 

glance towards the man. 

 

If the girl is familiar with the man, she should place near him, 

without saying anything, the tambula, the ointment, or the garland that 

he may have asked for, or she may tie them up in his upper garment. 

While she is engaged in this, the man should touch her young breasts in 

the sounding way of pressing with the nails, and if she prevents him 

doing this he should say to her, "I will not do it again if you will 

embrace me," and should in this way cause her to embrace him. While he 

is being embraced by her he should pass his hand repeatedly over and 

about her body. By and bye he should place her in his lap, and try more 

and more to gain her consent, and if she will not yield to him he should 

frighten her by saying, "I shall impress marks of my teeth and nails on 

your lips and breasts, and then make similar marks on my own body, and 

shall tell my friends that you did them. What will you say then?" In 

this and other ways, as fear and confidence are created in the minds of 

children, so should the man gain her over to his wishes. 

 

On the second and third nights, after her confidence has increased still 

more, he should feel the whole of her body with his hands, and kiss her 

all over; he should also place his hands upon her thighs and shampoo 

them, and if he succeed in this he should then shampoo the joints of her 

thighs. If she tries to prevent him doing this he should say to her, 

"What harm is there in doing it?" and should persuade her to let him do
