Usage

In literature:

How many, among the clever girls at Mademoiselle Haut-ton's school, had this sort of ambition to learn, of pride in learning?
"Queen Hildegarde" by Laura Elizabeth Howe Richards
Shade of Madame Haut-ton, hover over us, and bless this reunion!
"Hildegarde's Harvest" by Laura E. Richards

In poetry:

To be a "princess in disguise,"
And wear a robe of fireflies
All strung and wove together,
And be the cynosure of all
At Madame Haut-ton's carnival,
In fashion's gayest feather.
"Lightning-Bugs" by Hattie Howard
