Printed on image: "We have just received two patterns from Paris of the little pouches, which still continue to be worn, suspended from the waistband by a chain and hook, and sometimes by a cord. They are made in all kinds of materials, and are embroidered in gold, silver, and jet; or they are made of the same material as the dress with which they are worn, and trimmed in the same manner. Last year, it will be remembered, we gave a pattern of one of those pouches, when they first came up. Both of these patterns are new." "229."
