"Devil of a job it was collecting accounts of those convents. Tranquilla convent. That was a nice nun there, really sweet face. Wimple suited her small head. Sister? Sister? I am sure she was crossed in love by her eyes. Very hard to bargain with that sort of woman." (U8.143)
Tranquilla is the name of a Carmelite convent in Knock (Co Mayo) and another on Upper Rathmines street Co Dublin). This is a picture of the Carmelite nun S. Therese de Lisieux, really sweet face.
