Excerpt from The Swing of the Pendulum, Vol. 2 of 2
The Ravenhills kept house economically in South Kensington. True it is that the economies of life are among its heaviest expenditures, but necessity had not forced them into that dismal position. They lived prettily, and cared little for what they could not have. The house was charming, though the furniture might not have fetched much at a sale, the transforming genius, taste, not being marketable. Fresh chintzes and flowers, with old white Dresden, and Mrs. Ravenhill's watercolours on the walls, kept brightness even in the laud of fog.
