"A tiny coffin flashed by. In a hurry to bury. A mourning coach. Unmarried. Black for the married. Piebald for bachelors. Dun for a nun.
- Sad, Martin Cunningham said. A child.
A dwarf's face, mauve and wrinkled like little Rudy's was. Dwarf's body, weak as putty, in a whitelined deal box. Burial friendly society pays." (U6.322)
A post-mortem photograph of a Dublin baby in a whitelined box. On the back is handwritten: "Lawrence Patrick, died - March 28th 1893."
