restaurant, going as usual to
her business office in the Chem

has her luncheon.

not become generally knowi
that she had begun to spend
money so fast, she had decided
she was entitled to the best $15
a day will buy at the Plaza.
Dressed in black, she sits at
nights upon an upholstered
divan in the reception room of
the hotel, idly looking into a
mirror that cost a lot of money
and as idly playing with a bit of
tapestry that cost a lot more
i money.
I She dines in the restaurant in

the long line of taxicabs that
wait in front of the entrance.
