Could you explain this in simpler language?
she, to the last, expressed her indignation at the impiety of mariners and other, who had the presumption to go'meandering' about the world. it was in vain to represent to her that some conveniences, tea perhaps included, resulted from this objectionable practice. she always returned, with greater emphasis and with an instinctive knowledge of the strength of her objection, 'let us have no meandering.'
Thank you very much
