Also living here are three servants and a child of one of the servants. Next door live more servants and the family of one of the servants. Then the next door down from that lives Betsey Helm, a washerwoman and housekeeper, then Betsey's daughter who is also a washerwoman. (How could a family as wealthy as the Helms have washerwomen in the family? Is Betsey an illegitimate daughter of one of the servants?!)
