 "Agnes de Mordaunt adjusted her veil and wimple in order to 
ensure that her forehead was covered before leading Sister Idonea out of the chamber; she tied her monkey with a long ribbon to the base of her close-stool and, taking up her crozier, proceeded down the stone stairway to the refectory."

from The Clerkenwell Tales by Peter Ackroyd
