    A colonial mansion, a hereditary estate, I would say a haunted house, and reach the height of romantic felicity—but that would be asking too much of fate! There is a delicious garden! I never saw such a garden—large and shady, full of box-bordered paths, and lined with long grape-covered arbors with seats under them. The color is repellent, almost revolting; a smoldering unclean yellow, strangely faded by the slow-turning sunlight. Then I peeled off all the paper I could reach standing on the floor. It sticks horribly and the pattern just enjoys it!
