Biography: 

We don't see the "committee" of Jefferson Baptists who protest against allowing a woman like Ruby to stay in the town's hotel. The proprietor of the hotel refers to "these church ladies," but it's not clear whether they were the committee - or the group that sent the committee. In either case, the proprietor tells Horace that "once [them ladies] get set on a thing," a man "might just as well give up and do like they say" (180).
