Eliot seems to have felt otherwise, since he called the clerk "the young
man carbuncular" and said he was 21. Perhaps that suggests the typist
was near the same age. In any case, the age of 21 is usually "young" and
pretty definitely in the 20s.

I don't feel that the clerk and the typist are that young, certainly not
in their 20's anyway, and most certainly not in their hearts.
