"that a simple black veil...": Romeo Castellucci | The Minister's Black Veil
"How strange," said a lady, "that a simple black veil, such as any woman might wear on her bonnet, should become such a terrible thing on Mr. Hooper's face!"
Nathaniel Hawthorne, "The Minister’s Black Veil. A Parable", from Twice-Told Tales, 1837.
