Excerpt from Jupiter Lights It's extraordinary navigation, certainly, said Miss Bruce. Oh, mem, if you please, isn't it better than the bother? answered Meadows, respectfully. Meadows was Miss Bruce's maid; one could have told that she was English (even if one had t heard her speak) from her fresh, rosy complexion, her smooth hair put plainly and primly back from her forehead, her stiff-backed figure with its elbows out, and her large, thick-soled boots. I don't mind being 'umped-up on the bank, miss, if you please, she went on in her sweet voice, dropping her h's (and adding them, too) in unexpected places. It's those great waves we 'ad last week, mem, if you please, that seemed so horful. I am sorry you will have to see them again so soon, Miss Bruce answered, kindly. For Meadows was to return to England immediately; she was accompanying the American lady for the journey only.
