I. SPINSTERS ONE AND TWO, . . .
IV. MOLLY FREQUENTS THE COMPANY OF HER BETTERS,
SPINSTERS OF BLATCHINGTON.
SPINSTERS ONE AND TWO.
A LITTLE bay on the Sussex coast, the curving line of grass-crested cliffs showing white under the moon. Far out in the sea a distant pier, carrying a friendly light; other lights appearing and disappearing with the passing skiffs and vessels to which they are attached. A line of shingle-beach, crossed by a rough path of sand-sorry counterfeit of a “promenade." On the beach, an old clumsy fishing-boat of tub-like form and dimensions. In the boat, vis-à-vis, two girls — plus enormous woollen shawls, minus hats or bonnets.
The coastguard is not yet visible ; not a VOL. I.
