from her husband's L&M Companion entry:

...Her wit and good looks, Pepys found, did not compensate for her conceit and her sluttish housekeeping. Besides, she painted her face.

That doesn't quite agree with the August 3rd 1660 entry where Sam describes her as " At noon my wife and I by coach to Dr. Clerke’s to dinner: I was very much taken with his lady, a comely, proper woman, though not handsome; but a woman of the best language I ever heard."
