Eliot, G. (n.d.). Mr. Gilfil's Love Story. Retrieved from http://cn.ebooklibrary.org/

Excerpt: Chapter One. WHEN old Mr Gilfil died, thirty years ago, there was general sorrow in Shepperton; and if black cloth had not been hung round the pulpit and reading?desk, by order of his nephew and principal legatee, the parishioners would certainly have subscribed the necessary sum out of their own pockets, rather than allow such a tribute of respect to be wanting. All the farmers? wives brought out their black bombasines; and Mrs Jennings, at the Wharf, by appearing the first Sunday after Mr Gilfil?s death in her salmon?coloured ribbons and green shawl, excited the severest remark. To be sure, Mrs Jennings was a new?comer, and town?bred, so that she could hardly be expected to have very clear notions of what was proper; but, as Mrs Higgins observed in an undertone to Mrs Parrot when they were coming out of church, ?Her husband, who?d been born i? the parish, might ha? told her better.? An unreadiness to put on black on all available occasions, or too great an alacrity in putting it off, argued, in Mrs Higgins?s opinion, a dangerous levity of character, and an unnatural insensibility to the essential fitness of things.
