Transcript AS YOU MAKE YOUk BED so—the proverb runs—must you lie in it. And that I did—and how!—and what a sort of nobleman I hold myself in consequence to be, let the following most intimate confession show. Many years ago I met, here in America, a splendid fellow, a German, who said to me: "When you go to my country, come and visit me". In due time I did go abroad, and, with just a wired warning, travelled to Bremen, the city of my friend, and was driven to a house that by its situation, size, and splendour proclaimed itself to be exactly what in fact it was: a palace. There were: a marble foyer with a marble floor, marble columns and a monumental marble stairway ; there were marble statues everywhere. It was magnificent. "Gee!", I thought, "I wouldn't spend my life here for the world!" And no one asked me to. After conducting me through one luxurious suite after another, my hostess led me to the last and most magnificent of all. "Here," she said, as I stared pop- eyed at its regal splendour, "here is where the King of Bulgaria sleeps when he visits us". "MayI sleep in the King's bed?" I blurted out. "Why, of course", she said sweetly, "if you'd like to". "But in which of the two beds did he sleep?" "I don't know", she answered, "but you may sleep in one bed one night and in the other bed the next". And so I did. And by virtue of that, I now proclaim myself to be the man who has slept in the bed of the King of Bulgaria! I have slept in the bed of the King of Bulgaria and I have slept in warm reindeer skins on the hard ice of the frozen arctic sea. Tents, caves, shacks, lean-to's, barns, abandoned tenements; old wrecks of houses, brand new houses, little houses, big ones, clear up the scale to palaces —and down again. Where it has been my right to fix such dwelling places up—if only for a transient stay—to fix them, make them be like home, I have. That's been a passion of my life. And if I were to declare which home of those I've had I've loved the most, I'd say: the one that's still unfinished. Who of us, looking back to childhood, doesn't recall the houses that we built of chairs and tables hung about with shawls? How wonderful it was
