About this work
Dialogue includes: Aunt Sophy: "Now suppose, George, as a single woman I should have my name put on the register, what should I get by it?" Pet nephew: "Oh, a good deal. You'd be allowed to serve on coroner juries, common juries, annoyance juries, pay powder tax and abnormal bearings, act as parish beadle and night constable of the casual ward, and inspector of nuisances, report on fever districts, and all jolly things of that sort."
