Excerpt

she hasn't left her room; crying her eyes out, because I won't consent to her marrying a penniless young officer! But I will not squander my money. I made it all myself, by my own industry, and I refuse to keep young fellows in idleness."

"I don't give you any trouble, father."

"You are the best, Maggie, but you encourage your sister Sally. I hear that you, too, were seen walking with young Meason."

"It is not true, I assure you, father. I met him as I was going to the post-office. I said, 'How do you do?' and I passed on."

Pretty much everybody in the novel is a fool, and none of them improve with time.
