Miss Galindo: Mr. Carter, our work will be done by noon with so many hands assisting! And yet you told Lady Ludlow you were so overwhelmed with correspondence you could not cope without a dedicated clerk.

Mr. Carter: I needed no help. I simply hope to help another!

Miss Galindo: [to Mr. Carter] I have the fondest respect for Lady Ludlow. But she will always look at Harry and see a poacher's child. Just as you will always look at me and see a woman.

Miss Galindo: I know my presence does not please you. I had thought to stick my pen behind my ear and say "zounds" from time to time, but it will not convince you of my worth.

Mr. Carter: Please forgive me for speaking so plainly, but you are a milliner.

Miss Galindo: Do you think I long to stitch caps and sew feathers onto bonnets? I found myself obliged to earn my living, and society offered me no other opportunity. And since I find myself commissioned to make the coronets for May Day, I have more pressing things to do than stage this pantomime of assisting you!

Mr. Carter: I did not ask for you to be installed here!

Man: [to Jem] Letter.

Jem Hearne: It's from me mam. 'Aunt Clegg fell prey to dropsy in the second week of Lent. She had hid a will behind the clock. The clock came to me and you are left a token, too. I enclose the legacy.'

Job Gregson: I had a legacy once. It was a hat.

Jem Hearne: This is more than a hat. It's a five-pound note!

[Lady Ludlow has forced Mr. Carter to stop tutoring Harry]

Mr. Carter: I am sorry, Harry.

Harry Gregson: For what? Teaching me to read?

Mr. Carter: I will never be sorry for teaching you to read! I only regret that the world is such that you could be punished for learning.

Harry Gregson: You can't stop this happening, can you, Mr. Carter?

Mr. Carter: [Looks away]

Mary Smith: Martha! You must listen to reason!

Martha: Reason? Reason just means what someone else has got to say! I can talk reason when I've got a mind to, and I've got a mind to now.

Mary Smith: Martha, your loyalty does you credit and Miss Matty will be lost without you.

Martha: You're staying with her!

Mary Smith: I wouldn't dream of leaving! But I at least can pay my way here, with the allowance I get from my father. The truth of the matter is that Miss Matty is now going to have such a meager sum to live upon, she will not even be able to find the money for your food. Indeed, she will be hard-pressed to find the money for her own.

Martha: Is it as bad as that?

Mary Smith: It is every bit as bad as that.
