    Question her repose of manner?

    MISS POLLY HARRINGTON entered her kitchen a little hurriedly this June morning. Miss Polly did not usually make hurried movements; she specially prided herself on her repose of manner. But to-day she was hurrying -- actually hurrying.
    Her repose of manner? Could you rephrase the words? Thanks!

    Her style of relaxation, or her gently unhurried demeanor.
