He was up early, early enough to look at the paper before breakfast. " Woman Motorist Killed By Street-Car in Bronx."

" Grace," he said in a voice that was not his own, " I forgot. I'm supposed to be on the job at seven this morning. There's some kind of a parade."
Out of the house, alone, he talked aloud to himself for the first time since he was a kid.

" I forgot myself for a minute. I'm sorry," said Mr. Hughes. " If you'll overlook it, I'll pick you up on my way home and take you to the Bronx. Remember, I give you a ride home last month? Remember? That is, it was a fella that looked like you. That is, he looked something like you. I can see now it wasn't you. It was a different fella."
