Do you know some people don't like company? I do.
The real reason they don't is they are not fixed for it, I
think it is a shame that women who enjoy having their
friends come to see them can't ask them just because,their
houses are not properly furnished. They ought to just go
to their husbands and tell them plainly how thoy suffer be-'
cause they haven't got the furniture and rugs they need.
