"This was unfortunate, for already there was a throng before the door. The music had started up, and half a block away you could hear the dull "broom, broom" of a cello, with the squeaking of two fiddles which vied with each other in intricate and altitudinous gymnastics. Seeing the throng, Marija abandoned precipitately the debate concerning the ancestors of her coachman, and, springing from the moving carriage, plunged in and proceeded to clear a way to the hall. Once within, she turned and began to push the other way, roaring, meantime, "Eik! Eik! Uzdaryk-duris!" in tones which made the orchestral uproar sound like fairy music."

In this paragraph, Sinclair succcedes in portraying the company as coarse and ill-mannered. He describes the group in front of the door, the volume of the music, and the brash way in which Marija removes herself from the carriage and pushes her way through the guests gathered at the entrance. In the readers eyes, Marija also becomes a loud and pushy woman...... but she can also be seen a business like...... organized and determined.
