and took away her own clothes. The dress came to her only too manifestly 

unwashed from its former wearer; even the under-linen they gave her 

seemed unclean. Horrible memories of things seen beneath the microscope 

of the baser forms of life crawled across her mind and set her

bed--the wardress was too busy with the flood of arrivals that day 

to discover that she had it down--and her skin was shivering from the 

contact of these garments. She surveyed accommodation that seemed at 

first merely austere, and became more and more manifestly inadequate as 

the moments fled by. She meditated profoundly through several enormous 

cold hours on all that had happened and all that she had done since the 

swirl of the suffrage movement had submerged her personal affairs.... 

 

Very slowly emerging out of a phase of stupefaction, these personal 

affairs and her personal problem resumed possession of her mind. She had 

imagined she had drowned them altogether.
