It was to Peggy's that Spencer Deal escorted Hart a few weeks after the appearance of the article in Webster's. Deal, in presenting him, announced that he was at work on a" blue " symphony that would make George Gershwin's ultra rhythms and near dissonants sound like the doxology. " Oh! " exclaimed pretty Myra Hampton. "`'Vill he play some of it for us? "
" Play, play, play !" said Hart querulously. " Don't you think I ever want a rest ! Last night it was a party at Broun's and they kept after me and wouldn't take ' No' and finally I played just as rotten as I could, to learn them a lesson. But they didn't even know it was rotten.

In fact, one of them, Roy Lattimer, full of Scotch courage and not so full of musical ability, went to the piano himself and began to play.
" Began" is all, for he had not completed four bars before Hart plunged across the room and jostled him off the bench.
" I hope you don't call yourself a pianist! " he said, pronouncing it as if it meant a cultivator of, or dealer in, peonies. And for two hours, during which everybody but Spencer Deal and the unfortunate hostess walked out on him, Harry played and played and p1ayed.
