1. Whom is 'to be going to' refered? To a person or to a thing? If not to a person, what does it mean?
2. What does 'to be going into rooms' mean and to whom does it refer?
The sentence is as following: 'We took Little Furze for a period of six months, and Emily Barton explained to Joanna that she herself was going to be a very comfortable because she was going into rooms kept by an old maid...'
Thanks in advance,
Incidentally, an 'old maid' isn't any kind of maidservant. An old maid is a gentlewoman of a certain age who has not married (which - depending on the context of the quote - could explain why she has to let out rooms to 'make ends meet').
