From - A Letter For Alice...

The original photograph of Miss Prickett.

How could we ever forget Miss Prickett, with her crinoline bells and red brocades, and her raised suspicious eyebrows, and her little porcine eyes?

I suppose that, should I meet with her today, I should pity her: if only for her furious complexion and her sly love of the bottle, which was soon to undermine her iron rule.

I heard she married late in life, after leaving our family’s employment, and that she maintained an alehouse. But one can only wonder about the profits, if profits there were; unless she discovered Jesus and took the pledge.
