is playing with them. Honestly, if Tom ever spoke to me like Mr. Guthrie does to his wife, well-aren't they terrible, Tom? Oh, I'm sorry !
She was the first woman in Portland that called on me and I thought it was awfully nice of her, though when I saw her at the door I would have sworn she was a book agent or maybe a cook looking for work. She had on a-well, I can't describe it. But it was sweet of her to call, she being one of the real people there and me-well, that was before Tom was made a vice-president. What? Oh, I never dreamed he hadn't written you about that!
But Mrs. Guthrie acted just like it was a great honor for her to meet me, and I like people to act that way even when I know it's all apple sauce. Isn't that a funny expression, " apple sauce "? Some man said it in a vaudeville show in Portland the Monday night before we left. IIe was a comedian-Jack Brooks or Ned, Frawley or something. It means-well, I don't know how to describe it. But we had a terrible time after the first few minutes. She is the silentest person I ever knew and I'm kind of bashful myself with strangers. What are you grinning about, Tommie? I am, too, bashful when I don't know people. Not exactly bashful, maybe, but, well, bashful.
It was one of the most embarrassing things I ever went through. Neither of us could say a word and I could hardly help from laughing at what she had on. But after you get to know her you don't mind her clothes, though it's a terrible temptation all the time not to tell her how much nicer And her hair! But she plays a dandy game of bridge, lots better than her husband. You know he won't play conventions. He says it's just like telling you what's in each other's hand. And they have awful arguments in a game. That is, he does. She's nice and quiet and it's a kind of mystery how they ever fell in love. Though there's a saying or a proverb or something, isn't there, about like not liking like? Or is it just the other way?
But I was going to tell you about them wanting Tom to be mayor. Oh, Tom, only two down? Why, I think you did splendidly ! I gave you a miserable hand and Helen had-what didn't you have, Helen? You had the ace, king of clubs. No, Tom had the king. No, Tom had the queen. Or was it spades? And you had the ace of hearts. No, Tom had that. No, he didn't. What did you have, Tom? I don't exactly see what you bid on. Of course I was terrible, but-what's the difference anyway?
What was I saying? Oh, yes, about Mr. and Mrs. Guthrie. It's
