Miss Matty: Miss Matty is an older woman who never married the love of her life as he wasn't suitable for her father and mrs jenkins standards. She lives with regret about this her whole life though she rarely shows this side of her in public. When the Town and Country bank fails and Miss Matty is ruined, she resigns herself to selling her possessions and renting a small room with the money. Mary will not hear of this and does not rest until she has thought of some job that Miss Matty could do to earn some money. When the idea of selling tea is decided upon it comes as a shock to Miss Matty. While the natural timidity of Miss Matty's personality remains, it is significant that for once she does not consider what her sister might think and goes ahead with the idea of selling tea in order to be financially comfortable.
