        Nevertheless I can still see a direct connection between the
        picture of Justine bending over the dirty sink with the foetus
        in it, and poor Sophia of Valentinus who died for a love as
        perfect as it was wrong-headed.  (1.11)

Another "child" moment.  LD is giving Dickens a run for the title. Can 
someone explicate the "picture" here?  The Sophia business is not nearly 
so difficult, I think, as the when, where, and why of what Justine is 
doing.  Another darksome glance at LD's biography?  Right now I have the 
vaguely weird feeling that in Alex the sinks come with foeti. . . .
