Lady Johanna McEwan, The rich philanthropist #57 [Keystone - ENG 1]
Interpretato da: M. B.
Motto: Innocence is far from finding as much protection as it attracts crime.
Group: High Society
Teaser: Our world is at the peak of its path, yet half of us seem to be left behind. At the threshold of the new century and at the dawn of a new order, women are still forgotten, and the poor are neglected. But whoever among us holds power and prestige has a moral duty to God himself to help the weakest up again. My cause - nay, my destiny! - always seemed obvious to me: dedicate myself to young desperate girls, used and abused by men, rejected by families, banned because of shame or a sin. I believe in the mercy of God and men, and in human dignity: to assert this principle I have established a house where no need or sin is indelible. Thanks to the support of my beloved husband and of my invaluable friends, I have promoted rehabilitation for unfortunate young women. With the benevolent support of the holy Church I created a bulwark of salvation and hope for the ones the world has thrown aside.
There are some who see a metaphor in a laundress' job and in the moral exercise these young women take on. But let's leave these moralistic meditations to boors of the printed paper. What matters are the faces of these girls from which the brand of shame others have placed is washed away day after day.
My name is by now the very symbol of mercy, and everybody comes to me to boast of their help, their support, with gifts and privileges. My humility would impose upon me an honorable discretion, nevertheless salvation is not built only with prayers, but with lime and bricks that some would call by other names but are the same: money and favors, and a wise architect who is willing to make the great endevour!
When you rest between clean and tidy sheets and dance in your pure white linens, do not think about the money it cost you; think about the young women who have made their own souls clean, tidy and candid through their honest work.
Relations: Her personal maid is Christabel Goulden. Her husband is General Sir Charles Cowdery. She has often invited Arthur Edward Waite to receptions and soirées. Between her and Madame Poisson La Ferté there is a bizarre friendship based on mutual respect and studded by poisonous jokes and elegant bickering over who is best dressed. Her hatred for Mary Morstan is not a secret, but she tries to contain it because of Mary's popularity. She met Monsignor Mattei during a Grand Tour in Rome, and since then they have seen each other on several occasions.
