And then finding the "mottled cover," he credited Aunt Myra's money and took the rest of the morning for reflection.

He had heard that this famous soprano was young, pretty and therefore most prob ably approachable. Besides, he had a Cend who had a friend who knew r and he wrote for a letter of Intro duction. The day of the conjerj arrived warn the air was heavy with roses". Jimmy, despising the garden varieties, sent a week's board to New York for a bunch of hothouse ones, and armed with these and his cord he started fpr the hotel. Jimmy's way led past Mary's. Mary was In the garden clipping roses. She called him. "Hello, Jimmy." He was so dumfounded at the sweet sociableness of her tone that he al most dropped the box he carried. Then he recovered.
