The "committee" of Jefferson Baptists in Sanctuary who protest against allowing a woman like Ruby to stay in the town's hotel in do not directly appear. 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).
