Prime, Mrs. Dorothea (ray)

The elder daughter of Mrs. Ray, a widow wooed by the Rev. Mr. Prong, whose spiritual guidance she revered, but whose interest in her bank account she distrusted.

"Her fault was this; that she had taught herself to believe that cheerfullness was a sin, and that the more she became morose, the nearer would she be to the fruition of those hopes of future happiness on which her heart was set" - Rachel Ray.
