The Colonel had strong views on who was classed as important, in the society opening up to them showing respect and highly disregarded anyone of minimal importance.
“ I feared if I gave her a second’s chance she would continue to converse with me, causing Colonel Bradford to expire from shock.” (pg.59 –Anna Frith)
“The colonel’s pride was gratified by the presence of Elinor Mompellion at his table”. (pg.58 –Anna Frith).
Furthermore, the Colonel’s actions towards his own servants that have worked under his wing for many years, were unforgivable, leaving them with as little as nothing. Two people who are put into this situation were Maggie Cantwell who had been the Bradford's cook for 18 years and the pantry boy Brand, who were both left homeless and jobless.
Although Mr Mompellion tried his best reasoning with the Colonel, Mr. Bradford showed no compassion at all, “I am merely doing what any man of means and sense must do: safeguarding what is mine”. (pg. 112)
