OPHELIA, 鈥淵ou know, my dear, a brother can do so much for his sister if he lays himself out to do it. A mother can do very little 鈥?indeed, it is hardly a mother鈥檚 place to seek out young men; it is a brother鈥檚 place to find a suitable partner for his sister; all that I can do is to try to make Battersby as attractive as possible to any of your friends whom you may invite.
