She is more to be pitied than censored
Women's Sexualty and Murder in 19th Century America
Brown University Library

"She is More to be Pitied than Censured"

"She is more to be pitied than censured
She is more to be helped than despised
She is only a lassie who ventured
On life's stormy path ill advised
Do not scorn her with words fierce and bitter
Do not laugh at her shame and downfall
For a moment stop and consider
That a man was the cause of it all."

1894 song by William B. Gray
