Double Memory



News-Commentary, Drollery


Psychology, Human Development, Gender

    Discusses a report in Once a Week of a 'young lady' afflicted with 'A Double Memory': a 'two-fold state' in which the sufferer was 'as ignorant as a Member of Parliament' one day, and extremely 'accomplished' the next. Thinks this state of being 'alternately a child and a lady' has 'certain advantages', insofar as it allows people to fancy themselves as children and to forget their debts.
