From the sketch here given it will be seen, that our good grandmothers differed considerably in their ideas of a fine figure, from their scantily dressed descendants of the present day. A fine lady, in those times, waddled under more clothes even on a fair summer's day, than would have clad the whole bevy of a modern ball room. Nor were they the less admired by the gentlemen in consequence thereof. On the contrary, the greatness of a lover's passion seemed to increase in proportion to the magnitude of its object—and a voluminous damsel, arrayed in a dozen of petticoats, was declared by a Low-Dutch sonnetteer of the province, to be radiant as a sunflower, and luxuriant as a full blown cabbage. Certain it is, that in those days, the heart of a lover could not contain more than one lady at a time; whereas the heart of a modern gallant has often room enough to accommodate half a dozen — The reason of which I conclude to be, either that the hearts of the gentlemen have grown larger, or the persons of the ladies smaller — this however is a question for physiologists to determine.

Add punctuation to the following excerpt.

Irving continues in those days, the heart of lover could not contain more than one lady at a time a modern gallant has often room enough to accommodate half a dozen either the hearts of the gentleman have grown larger, or the persons of the ladies smaller

    If you are quoting, use quote marks.

    Irving continues, "In those days, the heart of lover could not contain more than one lady at a time. A modern gallant has often room enough to accommodate half a dozen. Either the hearts of the gentleman have grown larger, or the persons of the ladies smaller."

    The last two sentences could be joined using a semicolon.

    I hope this helps.
