— You did say that you were waiting for the money to come from the book illustration . That was last week.
— I know but it hasn’t come yet.
— Well, I am a very patient woman and a Christian. I have much troubles, too. I am a poor widow. The only income is from this building, you know. That’s all I am saying.
