Eliza Potter [1820–?]

Hairdressing is generally very trying; but I have always had the good luck, with a few exceptions, to work for the higher classes. I have worked for several years from eight in the morning till six in the evening, and, on ball-nights, as late as eleven, and given satisfaction to all my ladies, with the exception of a few meddlesome persons, who were jealous because some one else looked better than they did; for I find in these days people are more troubled about their looks than they were when I commenced hairdressing.
