As he grew older, George Mouton made a childless marriage to a local ewe of a titled family. Prudence, his wife, was thin and angular, and wore horn-rimmed spectacles (for she was more than a little short-sighted).
She was very proper and well-mannered but never showed her emotions. She excelled in knitting and lace-making. She drank many cups of tea a day and always wore a shawl and mittens.
George was short and stocky and determined-looking. He had a rough but kindly manner. He smoked a pipe and wore a starched collar. In lieu of his status as a leader, he always wore a gold watch on a chain.
