About Violet Wallace Shillito

"I saw Violet against the dark immovable mass of the château as she walked knee-deep in the grasses already yellowing, for it was July. She had on a soft blue batiste dress open at the neck, and a coarse straw hat trimmed with black velvet bows and a wreath of poppies and wheat. Her arms were bare to the elbow and there was such an expression of something in their soft pink curves, in her substantial wrists and padded, intelligent hands. I could not think what it was they expressed so fluently, but it was something vital and feminine and even matronly. "I thought that [Violet] looked as though she had come out of the round turrets to meet us, leaving her tapestry frame when she saw us on the road. She was always like; she belonged to all ages, she was like a synthesis of the past."
