Cornbury, Mrs. Patty (comfort)

Wife of Butler Cornbury, and mother of five children. A good electioneer for her husband, and a staunch friend to Rachel Ray in her matrimonial difficulties.

"She was bright, well featured, with speaking lustrous eyes, with perfect complexion, and full bust, with head of glorious shape and figure like a Juno: - and yet with all her beauty she had ever about her an air of homeliness which made the sweetness of her womanhood almost more attractive than the loveliness of her personal charms" - Rachel Ray
