Quote #10

Then somebody said – Sally Seton it was – did it make any real difference to one's feelings to know that before they'd married she had had a baby? (In those days, in mixed company, it was a bold thing to say.) He could see Clarissa now, turning bright pink; somehow contracting; and saying, "Oh, I shall never be able to speak to her again!" (4.12)

Sally’s views are shocking to Clarissa’s family – and to Clarissa. When she hears that someone has had a baby out of wedlock, Clarissa vows never to speak to that person again.
