My other grandmother J knew even less, afact which I did not regret since she seemed, fromwhat I
heard of her, tobe slightly mad, and may evenhavebeen so, for all I know. Shewas awidow living in
South Kensington with two small dogs to whomshe devoted all her leisure hours. She really should
have been adogbreeder rather than amother, for shefelt for her son amild affection only one degree
warmer than indifference, whereas shewould actually show real love to her dogs. Thedogs were taken

That project which engaged Lady Bruton's attention, which was the motive power of her soul: the
project of emigrating young people of bothsexes born of respectable parents and settingthemup witha
fair prospect of doing well in Canada. Sheexaggerated. Shehad perhaps lost her sense of proportion.
Emigration was not to others the obvious remedy, the sublime conception. It was not to them the
liberator of theunexpressed egotism, whichastrong martial woman, well nourished, well descended, of
direct impulses, downright feelings, and little introspective power, feels rise within her, onceyouth is
past, andmust,eject upon some object - it may beEmigration, it may beEmancipation; but what ever it
be, this object round which the essence of her soul is daily secreted becomes inevitably prismatic,
lustrous, half looking-glass, half precious stone; now carefully hidden incasepeople should sneer at it;
now proudly displayed. Emigration had become, in short, largely Lady Bruton. (Virginia Woolf, Mrs.
Dalloway)
