The enticing Ogler, he is coiffed with a hat à la Mexborough and dressed in a striped Coat.
Oglers. - "Paris is full of these ruthless oglers who plant themselves in front of you and fix their immobile and confident eyes on your person: this custom no longer passes as indecent, by becoming common. Women are not offended by it, provided that it happens at spectacles and on promenades; but if one tries to look at them thus in a circle of people, the ogler will be taxed with insolence, and treated as impolite."
