Mary is the third child, caught in between the two elder and two younger, like an object that falls between two stools. She has neither her mother’s beauty and energy nor her father’s intelligence and good breeding.

Mary is ugly, unenergetic, un-idealistic, unwanted; one who will perhaps live to be an old maid. Her education is undigested reading. Her opinions are trite and not even strong. Her music is physical exercise without feeling or charm. Her manners are uninviting. She takes to reading, an inoffensive pastime that secures her from lack of attention. She is as opinionated and pushy as her mother in expressing her views and displaying her musical ability, but no one appreciates either the one or the other.
