The amah has to do everything—her duties extend even to emptying out the dirty water after the mistress has washed her feet. The family orders the amah around as if they are trying to get every bit of their money’s worth out of her.

The hands of children set them in flight, as do the hands of vagabonds, who are, after all, children who never grew up.
