In "Editha" what does George's mother mean by, "No you didn't expect him to get killed....... see the faces of?"
Here is the full quote:
"No, you didn't expect him to get killed," Mrs.
Gearson repeated, in a voice which was startlingly
like George's again. "You just expected him to kill
some one else, some of those foreigners, that weren't
there because they had any say about it, but because
they had to be there, poor wretches--conscripts, or
whatever they call 'em. You thought it would be all
right for my George, your George, to kill the sons of
those miserable mothers and the husbands of those
girls that you would never see the faces of."
