"Mistress Mary quite contrary"

In this Chapter, the author tells us that Mary was so ugly that nobody wanted to play or be with her.
Mrs. Medlock, the housekeeper of Mary’s uncle’s house, Misselthwaite Manor (where the girl would live) told her about her uncle, Mr. Archibald Craven and his big house, which had a hundred rooms, most of which were locked up.
Mary was told that Mr. Craven was married to a beautiful woman who died ten years before Mary arrived at the Misselthwaite. Mr. Craven was so sad when his wife died, that he never wanted anybody to see him, except for Pitcher, his butler. (link to the book).
