THE YATES PRIDE
A ROMANCE

BY
MARY E. WILKINS FREEMAN

PART I


THE YATES PRIDE

Opposite Miss Eudora Yates's old colonial mansion was the perky
modern Queen Anne residence of Mrs. Joseph Glynn.  Mrs. Glynn had
a daughter, Ethel, and an unmarried sister, Miss Julia
Esterbrook. All three were fond of talking, and had many callers
who liked to hear the feebly effervescent news of Wellwood.  This
afternoon three ladies were there: Miss Abby Simson, Mrs. John
Bates, and Mrs. Edward Lee. They sat in the Glynn sitting-room,
which shrilled with treble voices as if a flock of sparrows had
settled therein.

The Glynn sitting-room was charming, mainly because of the
quantity of flowering plants.  Every window was filled with them,
until the room seemed like a conservatory.  Ivy, too, climbed
over the pictures, and the mantel-shelf was a cascade of
wandering Jew, growing in old china vases.
