"You're looking very well—and happy, Mrs. Blaisdell," smiled Mr. Smith as he greeted her.
"I am well, and I'm perfectly happy, Mr. Smith," she beamed. "How could I help it? You know about the new home, of course. Well, it's all ready, and I'm ordering the furnishings. Oh, you don't know what it means to me to be able at last to surround myself with all the beautiful things I've so longed for all my life!"
"I'm very glad, I'm sure." Mr. Smith said the words as if he meant them.

Maggie has had to—"
"Er—but tell us about the new home," interrupted Mr. Smith quickly, "and the fine new furnishings."
"Why, there isn't much to tell yet—about the furnishings, I mean. I haven't got them yet. But I can tell you what I'm GOING to have." Mrs. Hattie settled herself more comfortably, and began to look happy again. "As I was saying to Maggie, when you came in, I shall get almost everything new—for the rooms that show, I mean,—for, of course, my old things won't do at all. And I'm thinking of the pictures.
