Excerpt from Poor Dear Theodora Theodora knew every worn spot in the rug, and just how it must be covered with a chair or a card table aunt Augusta was entertaining at Bridge this afternoon She knew how a vase of owers must be carefully disposed so as to hide the crack in the long mirror that surmounted the hideous brown slate mantel The Mirror, in spite of its chipped and tarnished frame, was a beautiful heirloom, a relic of a day when taste was so clean and pure albeit a tri e cold as to make one gasp in wonder at the later transition to horsehair, and plush, and slate mantels out lined in gilt, and hideous brown and gold wall paper, and atrocious hanging cabinets with glass doors and irregularly placed shelves, and patent rockers upholstered in art stuffs.All of these things abounded in the room where Theodora stood, duster in hand, kitchen apron reducing her figure to a shapeless mass But the room held better things as well One of them was Theodora herself In Spite of the disfiguring Chrysalis which shrouded her, it was abundantly evident that Theodora was a very good thing indeed.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books Find at www.forgottenbooks.comThis book is a reproduction of an important historical work Forgotten Books uses state of the art technology to digitally reconstruct the work, preserving the original format whilst repairing imperfections present in the aged copy In rare cases, an imperfection in the original, such as a blemish or missing page, may be replicated in our edition We do, however, repair the vast majority of imperfections successfully any imperfections that remain are intentionally left to preserve the state of such historical works.
