Hi,

What does 'in little condition' mean?

'Lady Francis is in little condition, but she inherited the rarest jewels and always carries them with her.'

Thank you very much.

The summary you are reading was written by a non-native writer. The website is hosted by Russians. It is riddled with mistakes, and this is one of them. He meant "in reduced circumstances", and knowing Doyle, "in little condition" is probably a mistranslation of that very phrase. She is basically in poverty, except that she owns the jewels.
