Useless to attempt resistance during the long process of undressing, dressing again, brushing and combing, inspection of finger-nails and general, dissatisfied scrutiny that ensued.

Of the immense force latent in the power of intense feeling Alex knew nothing, nor did any of the teaching which she received vouchsafe to her any illumination. She is always short of funds: the pawnbroker knows her well and her banker dreads her visits to have her overdraft extended.

This was the more marked by the thick flaxen hair which fell back from her face, and over her shoulders into natural heavy ringlets. A Reversion to E.M.
