Econgoke who is capable of loving nobody but herself, acted her last scene in character also, for she pretended to be sorry with such a remorseless face & tone that I think the very Coach horses must perceive she was glad she had got all she cou'd out of us & the English, and that she car'd for none of us farther, & that she rejoic'd in the idea of being a Nabobess in Labradore & insulting over her inferiors.
