The Men Were Dead, You See

“The men were dead, you see, and the women didn’t marry so much because there was no one for them to marry, and so they had leisure, and, I think, in a good many cases they had money because their brothers were dead, and all that would tend to writing, wouldn’t it, being single, and having some money, and having the time — having no men, you see.”

~ Ivy Compton-Burnett
