She lived like a gentlewoman, as far as outward appearance went, and never seemed to be in want; but some people would say that she knew very well how many sides there were to a shilling, and some enemy had once declared that she was an " old soldier."- "An Unprotected Female at the Pyramids", Anthony Trollope.
