    I guess we do not know what she preferred but why use any denominator  for "Miss" Beecher but not for Mr. Romney?

      In her day, Catharine Beecher had two choices, Miss or Mrs.  I used "Miss" simply to implicitly underscore the point.

      That said, nice catch!

      Take my vote for granted at your peril.
