Inside "Wave Hill"

"My room was next to Mrs. Clemens's, with a large bathroom in between. I could not talk with her, but I
could correspond with writing. Every night I slipped a letter under the bathroom door that opened near
her bed...she put her daily message of love in trembling characters upon little scraps of paper, and this she
continued until the day she died."
