Excerpt from Echoes of the War Her abode really consists of one room, but she maintains that there are two; so, rather than argue, let us say that there are two. The other one has no window, and she could not swish her Old skirts in it Without knocking something over; its grandest display is Of tin pans and crockery on top of a dresser which has a lid to it; you have but to whip Off the utensils and raise the lid, and, behold, a bath with hot and cold. Mrs. Dowey is very proud of this possession, and when she shows it Off, as she does perhaps too frequently, she first signs to you with closed fist (funny Old thing that she is) to approach softly. She then tiptoes to the dresser and pops off the lid, as if to take the bath unawares. Then she sucks her lips, and is modest if you have the grace to do the exclamations.
