How did the Slaters plan to outshine the Jordans?
Mrs Slater was a shallow person who never bothered about anyone in her family. Her sole concern was to outdo her sister in every endeavour. The mourning dresses that her family wore were not very impressive according to her. So she ordered dresses for everyone in the family. She believed her sister may have not thought of mourning dresses; it was a perfect opportunity for Mrs Slater to outshine her sister.
