I supposed that was why it was called a faithless door, but I guess I was more interested
in whether the term was a common one or was coined by Wolfe. If it weren't coined by
Wolfe, then I supposed that it might provide some insight into the nature of the mausoleum.
How could such a heavy door be faithless? It is implied that the door is so heavy
that it will never be closed. If that is so, how was it ever opened in the first place? And by whom?
Certainly not by a stray gust of wind like the faithless screen door at my house!
