A knot of clever women

The above phrase, used by Jonathan Bell in his memoirs to describe his sisters, has been quoted by a number of  researchers. Following is the quote in full.

‘My sisters, one and all were highly talented, they were not accomplished in worldly elegancies, but their natural fine understandings and mutual affectionate unities led them to a wise cultivation of those Talents God had blessed them with, and through life they were all estimated as a knot of clever women.’
