MY VERY WORDS.
And a voice from beyond the bath-house door said:
I could bare no more. Heedless of Jane's Protests and Anguish, I
got up and went out, into the light of day. My body was bent with
misry. Because at last I knew that, like mother and all the rest,

material, the stuff that plays are made of!
And now we know that he never could know,
And did not understand.
