(q.v.), meaning "pure." Also spelled Katrijn.
[Drinking.] Curse it, that's hot. It's happened to me
before with the dog car, in a tempest like this. It was for
Katrien. She was expecting every minute. I was upset twice,
car and all. And when the doctor came, Katrien was dead and the
child was dead, but if you ask me, I'd rather sit in my dog car tonight
than to be on the sea. (The Good Hope, Heijermans, 1912)
