“…poor old Mr. Swales was found dead this morning on our seat, his neck being broken.”

“The {Demeter’s captain] was laid to rest quite near our seat so that we stood on it when the time came and saw everything. Poor Lucy seemed much upset.‘

Mina seems puzzled by Lucy’s uneasiness, and puts it down to her sleepwalking and disturbed sleep. However Lucy may privately be having mixed emotions about Mina’s favourite seat, now that it is connected not just with a suicide but also with the far more recent death of Mr. Swales. Lucy is keeping her concerns to herself, though, in the face of Mina’s example.
