"There were the two front rooms upstairs to be prepared. She would open the windows at once, and let the air sweep through all night . . . She hurried upstairs, and lit the gas in the two rooms, throwing wide the windows, hunting out fresh sheets and counterpanes. She could dust and run the carpet-sweeper over the rooms right away, and have them in order; and that would save time for tomorrow . . .
Julia bustled around happily, putting the rooms into charming order, hunting up a little picture . . ."
