- I like "The Woman of Shamlegh"; she's got depth, dimension, and is easily the most interesting character since, I think, the priests at the military camp or Mr. Lurgan, if not of the entire book. Even better, there's only one chapter left of the book, so it's unlikely Kipling will have time to ruin her! (Sorry. That was mean.)
- "Umm," said Kim thoughtfully, considering the past. "It may be that I have acquired merit also. . . . At least she did not treat me like a child." Is this what this whole thing's been all about?
