Mr. Farolles is a clergyman at the local church (St. John’s) and an old friend of the colonel who visits Constantia and Josephine to offer help for the funeral, including a “little Communion”—an offer the sisters seem reluctant to accept, since they feel that their apartment is ill-suited for the Communion ritual. Mr. Farolles clearly respected Grandfather Pinner, since he begins to sit in the colonel’s chair when he arrives at the apartment before quickly correcting his mistake, as if mindful of the colonel’s status even after his death.
