I am just old-fashioned enough to prefer long hair.
I was reared in an atmosphere where a great deal of attention was paid to women's hairdressing.
Bobbed hair makes women look uniform. They lack individuality.
And yet because of my attempt at sincerity I have been condemned, hooted at, reviled; filthy rumors have been circulated about me, not about my characterizations but about me personally, my private self.
It is not because I do not love my adopted land - it is the natural feeling of one far from home, who remembers those happy, carefree days when life flowed at full tide, without responsibility, flashing past one like the drama in a fascinating story of adventure and romance.
