Examples from literature

  • But, well educated as the Dutchwoman undoubtedly is, there is nothing about her of the 'blue-stocking,' and she does not impress you as being clever until a long acquaintance has brought out her many-sided knowledge. 
  • Savage, find me a Dutchwoman like her! 
  • She was a Dutchwoman, enormously fat—when she walked she rolled like a small boat on the ocean, and the dishes in the cupboard jostled each other. 
  • The Dutchwoman dresses expensively in all the towns, and generally well. 
  • The great pity is that her education leads to so little, for there are very few channels into which a Dutchwoman can direct her knowledge.
