In THE SORRY TALE, what does Legia refer to in the following quote?
"Thou hast an eye, thou hast an arm, thou hast a Legia!"

Legia is used as a name in the story and Mrs. Curran, who often failed to understand what Patience was communicating to her, did not understand this name.

Anyone know?

Thanks in advance,

Well it sounds to me like a bad pun on the name, like saying

Thou hast an eye, thou hast an arm, thou hast a Leg

could it be a reference to a key word in some romance language? I took Italian for a while, and I know that Legere means to read. Or it could refer to something else. I really have no idea for this one, I just felt like posting. :P
