She was learning a great many things in New York every day—that was quite true. She was learning with her eyes and with her ears. She was not afraid to ask questions. Upon her return to Renwood she planned to snub the persons who served her, the salesgirls in the stores who had known her always, who said, "Hi, Lil." She would even snub Sally a little, as befitted her new status. Mrs. William H. Legendre of Harding Avenue could not have Sally Holtz for a best friend (62-3).
It seemed to Lillian that in New York, where you wanted to look your best night and day—where, indeed, you had to look your best to be even noticeable—a companion who was a beautician by trade might earn her salt. Moreover, Sally was clever with a needle, and she could get spots out of things. It would be almost like having a lady's-maid along (203-4).
