In Bertha Steel, Levinia Pate, Mary Carrington, The Visiting Inspector on May 20, 2006 at 6:26 pm

Bertha Steel is ‘thin and delicate’, Mary Carrington is ‘stout and well’.
Levinia Pate is ‘clean and well-kept’ in March, ‘healthy and clean’ in April, but ‘dead’ early in May.

Lucky Bertha Steel. By May she has ‘improved in every way’.
