You were not so fat at Port Ar —-Oh, I forgot, my dear! Come and sit down. That’s right. I have told them all that I am your wife, for whom you have sent.

She isn’t the bright-faced baby she was when they sent her here to ‘reform’, and when Lieutenant Frere wanted a new housemaid from the Factory! Call for her!— call! do you hear? Ask any one of those beasts whom you lash and chain for Lucy Barnes. He’ll tell you all about her — ay, and about many more — many more poor souls that are at the bidding of any drunken brute that has stolen a pound note to fee the Devil with!
