Chapter 4

Mamma, what is a virgin?"
"A maid."
"Well, what is a maid?"
"A girl or woman that isn't married."
"Uncle Jonas says that sometimes a virgin that has been having a child -- "
"Nonsense! A virgin can't have a child."
"Why can't she, mamma?"
"Well, there are reasons why she can't."
"What reasons, mamma?"
"Physiological. She would have to cease to be a virgin before she could have the child."
"How do you mean, mamma?"
"Well, let me see. It's something like this: a Jew couldn't be a Jew after he had become a Christian; he couldn't be Christian and
Jew at the same time. Very well, a person couldn't be mother and virgin at the same time."
"Why, mamma, Sally Brooks has had a child, and she's a virgin."
"Indeed?' Who says so?"
"She says so herself."
"Oh. no doubt! Are there any other witnesses?"
"Yes -- there's a dream. She says the governor's private secretary appeared to her in a dream and told her she was going to have a
child, and it came out just so."
"I shouldn't wonder! Did he say the governor was the correspondent?"
