Transcript Enameloid Blue, Lettuce and Yellow (Continued From Page 4) inches on her land. "Come, move it off", she said. I parted with some cash. And to this day, there, mellowed by time yet hardly changed, and all but hidden by the native alders, stands the little house. One cannot see it and not love it. In a forgotten corner of New Hampshire where the wilderness has mostly reclaimed what long ago were cultivated fields and cleared pastures, where lilacs in the forest mark the sites of homes, we found a ruined house. The sash were gone from its windows; the long unpainted clapboards were riven, warped, and rotting from neglect; the porch had collapsed; and the floors were littered with the refuse of fallen ceilings. "It's yours to use", its city owner said, "and what you need to fix it up I'll pay for". We shingled the roofs; we nailed the clapboards back and painted them; we repaired the porch and patched the doors; we stripped the ceilings to their blackened hand-hewn beams- Vase and rail Enameloid Blue and left them so; and to regain the light that the black ceilings robbed us of we made the side walls white. Bright curtains at the windows, old auction furniture made new with paint, books on the table, china on the shelves, and flowers everywhere: Kent Family, move in! And in getting up that night to chase the last porcupine from under our bed we were within S.W.P. Verdas Green our rights: We'd made that rodents' den a HOME. Brigus in New Foundland lies on a harbour of Conception Bay. Like all those coastal towns its glory as a thriving port of fishermen had passed. Untenanted and blind, its mansion house faced on an empty harbour and abandoned wharves. But for the size and dignity of that old house I might have taken it, as one might eagerly assume high rank unmindful of rank's duties. I didn't—and was wise. The old house farther out from town around the bay, being in no degree a mansion, was more inviting to the style of living which I thought our Fifty Dollars a month might comfortably yield the five of Enameloid Platinum and Chinese Red us—a style to which, to tell the truth; we were accustomed. The house, they said, had not been lived in for fully twenty years; and, through what weather and bad boys had done, I didn't question it. But it had style. Long, low and narrow it clung to the hillside like an outcropping of the native ledge, or, like a frightened thing, shrank from the perilous edge of the scant terrace upon which it stood until its rear was buried in the hill. Let wind, rain, hail and avalanche of snow beat on this house! They've beaten hard throughout the years; they've torn and shaken it, and seamed its sides. It stands. The house belongs there; it has style. I scraped and smoothed its weatherbeaten boards, filled them and painted them. Old lilac bushes stood around the house; their background was the bay; lilac and blue, and a green hillside bright with dandelions; and the house —pure white! The doors I painted Bed Room in Blue 21
