Editor's Note: I have not figured out why Allen prefers the church in the burg v. Sunday School in Ivory with his family.  I suppose it is all about "seeing and being seen" and feeling independent.  However, I can just imagine his disappointment in having his plans pious (or otherwise) disrupted by the passing of poor Mrs. Williams.
