In "A Case of Mistaken Identity," describe Miss Mary Sutherland.
Miss Mary Sutherland is said to have a "preposterous hat and...vacuous face." She is a lady of some small fortune of "a hundred a year," left her by her uncle, who makes a living by taking typewriting jobs at home. She is an as yet unmarried young woman who is gentle mannered, good-hearted, sincere and innocently simple in her expectations. She is not greedy because she lets her mother and new husband, Mary's stepfather, have the use of her annual income while she lives at home until she marries, and she would give up all to know what happened to Hosmer Angel.
