"When Mrs. Sampson Jones was notified she must go at once in the boats provided for her, she had to be urged to leave her housework. Her reputation as the best housekeeper in the community was at stake, even in the face of peril and the fact that in a few hours her house would be at the mercy of the flood, could hardly change her tidy habits of so many years."
