She was a little woman, but strong, active and wiry, with a sallow skin, sharp, regular features and small, beady eyes, Her hair, suspiciously black for her age, was always very neat, and she wore it in the style of Queen Victoria's daughters, which she had adopted as soon as she was old enough to put it up and had never thought fit to change.

Thus he showed his respect for the day of rest and at the same time registered a protest against the
