The shop assistant, described as a “young girl,” helps Mrs. Sommers find a pair of black silk stockings in the right size. Mrs. Sommers feels like a princess when the assistant asks if she would like to inspect the silk stockings, just as she feels like royalty when she tips the waiter later that day.
