" Listen," I said. " I've got a piano in storage that belonged to my mother. It's a mahogany upright and not so big that it wouldn't fit in this room, especially when you get that ` trough' table out. It isn't doing me any good and I'll sell it to you for $250. Mother paid $1,250 for it new."
" Oh, I couldn't think of taking it! " said Mrs. Dwan.
" I'll make it $200 even just because you're a friend of Florence's," I said.
" Really, I couldn't! " said Mrs. Dwan.
" You wouldn't have to pay for it all at once," I said.
" Don't you see," said Florence, " that a mahogany upright piano would be a perfect horror in here? Mildred wouldn't have it as a gift, let alone buy it. It isn't in the period."
" She could get it tuned," I said.
The answer to this was, " I'll show you the up-stairs now and we can look at the dining-room later on."
We were led to the guest-chamber. The bed was a maple fourposter, with pineapple posts, and a" tester " running from pillar to post. You would think a" tester " might be a man that went around trying out beds, but it's really a kind of frame that holds a canopy over the bed in case it rains and the roof leaks. There was a quilt made by Mrs. Dwan's great-grandmother, Mrs. Anthony Adams, in 1859, at Lowell, Mass. How is that for a memory?
" This used to be the hay-loft," said Mrs. Dwan.
" You ought to have left some of the hay so the guests could hit it," I said.
The dressers, or chests of drawers, and the chairs were all made of maple. And the same in the Dwans' own room; everything maple.
" If you had maple in one room and mahogany in the other," I said, " people wouldn't get confused when you told them that so and so was up in Maple's room."
Dwan laughed, but the women didn't.
The maid hollered up that dinner was ready.
" The cocktails aren't ready," said Dwan.
" You will have to go without them," said Mrs. Dwan. "The soup will be cold."
This put me in a great mood to admire the " sawbuck " table
