Eating The Ice Cream Cone
Gentle Advice for the Gentlewoman
If the occasion should arise when a Gentlewoman is offered an ice cream cone,
she should refrain from eating it in a public place.
Exposure of the tongue by using its tip to lick the ice cream from the cone
will serve only to mark her as a woman of unsavoury and unattractive appetites.
The woman should take the ice cream cone home,
place it upside down in a shallow dish,
discard the cone and eat the ice cream with a spoon.
