|Beware this young man

in consequence of the missive, I stole my mother's diadem., penned by The Grey Lady
Unhappy as this decision must be for you (and your mother, I suppose), you must realize that loss of a diadem for a female is irretrievable -- that one false step involves her in endless ruin -- that her reputation is no less brittle than her diadem--well, her mother's diadem--is beautiful -- and that she cannot be too much guarded in her behaviour towards the undeserving diadem-seekers of the other sex.
If this were my decision, the young man would not have a raven's claw in h--- of getting the diadem from me. (Oh, dear, I probably should not have said that. What would dear Mr. Collins think?)
