To us our house was not unsentient matter--it had a heart & a soul
& eyes to see us with, & approvals & solicitudes & deep
sympathies; it was of us, & we were in its confidence, & lived
in its grace & in the peace of its benediction. We never came home
from an absence that its face did
...combination Mississippi River steamboat and cuckoo clock.
It wouldn't do to call it "mongrel" for that would be offensive
to some. I guess we'll call it "eclectic"--the word describes
everything that can't be otherwise described.
