Almost a month after leaving England they sailed back to Dover tired but exhilarated, and with Amy successfully shaken out of her doleful lethargy.

I believe Sisterhoods to be the highest life and, believing so, I don’t see how I can be justified in living a lower one; I suppose if I were to fall in love with anyone it might alter the case but unless that were to happen it seems to me nothing would alter my duty. And even in the case I put – of my falling in love – it might be the higher and more acceptable act to put aside that earthly love and give myself more entirely to the Divine Love.
