The underlined word is: It was vain for Mrs.
Wix to represent--as she speciously proceeded to do--that all this time would be made up as soon as Mrs. Farange returned: she, Miss Overmore, knew nothing, thank heaven, about her confederate, but was very sureany person capable of forming that sort of relation with the lady in
