Yes; after the GA has left, Nancy says the Dís should read the letter she has written to Molly (Mary); a "sort of public testimonial". Timothy says he "likes the way she polished off the police and Colonel Jolys. If you ask me, I think your Great Aunt is remarkably like her Great Niece."

"And the way she dealt with Jolyís notion of taking his whole gang to see her off at the station. ... Did you hear her tell her man (Dick Elleray??) not to drive at more than ten miles an hour?" (PM 30)

When the GA is upstairs and about to leave, Colonel Jolys says to the sergeant that to save face the searchers should "Give her a cheer when she comes out". So there is "a burst of cheering, .... trumpets (!) coach calls and hunting calls. Every man who had a horn was blowing it as hard as he could" This will confirm the GAís opinion to the Dís that "Tommy Jolys Ö was always a noisy and ill-behaved little boy" With a toy trumpet! (PM 28,29).
