Neefit, Polly

A strong-minded young woman, determined that her father should not make a “lady” of her through marriage with Ralph, the heir. Her choice of Ontario Moggs showed her good sense.

 " pretty a girl as you shall wish to see, in spite of a nose that was almost a pug nose, and a mouth that was a little large ...her laughing dark eyes were full of good homour. Her complexion was perfect.... She was tall, and well made, -perhaps almost robust. She was goodhumoured, somewhat given to frank coquetry and certainly fond of young men" - Ralph the Heir
