Todd, Miss Sally

A friend and fellow traveler of Miss Baker, who lived at the Paragon in Littlebath, and was happiest when giving parties. Two memorable ones were those in the Valley of Jehoshaphat, where she entertained the Bertrams, father and son; and the card party in Littlebath that so annoyed the Stumfoldians.

Sir Lionel Bertram was interested in her fortune, and proposed marriage, but with no success."...a maiden lady, fat, fair, and perhaps almost forty; a jolly, jovial lady, intent on seeing the world, and indifferent to many of its prejudices and formal restraints" - The Bertrams
