It was not uncommon for her to go rather further, when she wanted time to give such explanations as she could have desired. " and hurry us off without a moment's delay, to do our best at a venture, without waiting for instructions.

This passage leads to the old nuns' sleeping-room on the right, and the Superior's sleeping-room, just beyond it, as well as to a staircase which conducts to the nuns' sleeping-room, or dortoir, above.
