Capacity for Revenge.

That a person cannot and consequently will not defend himself, does not yet cast disgrace upon him in our eyes ; but we despise the person who has neither the ability nor the good will for revenge whether it be a man or a woman.  Would a woman be able to captivate us (or, as people say, to "enthral" us) whom we did not credit with knowing how to employ the dagger (any kind of dagger) skilfully against us under certain circumstances?  Or against herself; which in a certain case might be the severest revenge (the Chinese revenge).
