CONCLUDING REMARKS

accord, and be living with another woman, the former (wishing to take up 

with him again) should first ascertain if he left her in the first 

instance in the hope of finding some particular excellence in the other 

woman, and that not having found any such excellence, he was willing to 

come back to her, and to give her much money on account of his conduct, 

and on account of his affection still existing for her. 

 

Or, whether, having discovered many faults in the other woman, he would 

now see even more excellences in herself than actually exist, and would 

be prepared to give her much money for these qualities. 

 

Or, lastly, to consider whether he was a weak man, or a man fond of 

enjoying many women, or one who liked a poor woman, or one who never did 

anything for the woman that he was with. After maturely considering all 

these things, she should resort to him or not, according to 

circumstances. 

 

(5). As regards the man who may have been driven away from the one 

woman, and left the other of his own accord, the former woman (wishing 

to re-unite with him) should first ascertain whether he still has any 

affection for her, and would consequently spend much money upon her; or 

whether, being attached to her excellent qualities, he did not take 

delight in any other women; or whether, being driven away from her 

formerly before completely satisfying his sexual desires, he wished to 

get back to her, so as to be revenged for the injury done to him; or 

whether he wished to create confidence in her mind, and then take back 

from her the wealth which she formerly took from him, and finally 

destroy her; or, lastly, whether he wished first to separate her from 

her present lover, and then to break away from her himself. If, after 

considering all these things, she is of opinion that his intentions are 

really pure and honest, she can re-unite herself with him. But if his 

mind be at all tainted with evil intentions, he should be avoided. 

 

(6). In the case of the man who may have been driven away by one 

woman, and be living with another, if the man makes overtures in return 

to the first one, the courtesan should consider well before she acts, 

and while the other woman is engaged in attracting him to herself, she 

should try in her turn (through keeping herself behind the scenes) to 

gain him over, on the grounds of any of the following considerations, 

viz.: 

 

1st. That he was driven away unjustly and for no proper reason, and now 

that he has gone to another woman, every effort must be used to bring
