Priscilla Lammeter Character Analysis

Nancy Lammeter’s less attractive sister, Priscilla is likeable for her good sense and strong character. She seems happily resigned to a life of caring for Mr. Lammeter, their father, and she encourages Nancy’s marriage and happiness. Nancy wishes that Priscilla’s clothes and her own always match because they are sisters, and Priscilla unselfishly has them dress in the colors that will favor Nancy, rather than herself.
