Harris

.

Mrs. Harris. An hypothetical lady, to whom Sarah Gamp referred for the corroboration of all her statements, and the bank on which she might draw to any extent for self-praise. (Dickens: Martin Chuzzlewit.) (See Brooks of Sheffield.)

Not Mrs. Harris in the immortal narrative was more quoted and more mythical.”—Lord Lytton.
