Abstract: The deviled eggs, covered with a napkin, were on a corner of the table; and the beaten biscuits were stacked in a neat pile in a box. Everything had been done, it seemed. Annie inspected the kitchen carefully, the full wood-box, the clean bread board, the shelves covered with fresh paper. They would be eating in the yard, but Emily might bring little Emily in for a drink of water; and she wanted everything to be like a pin. "This is silly," she scolded herself. "Forty years, and I'm behaving like I've just married into the family." It had always been that way when they came, and they were conscious of it as much as she. As soon as one of them set foot in her hall, an odd sort of pride took hold of her; and hard as she tried to conceal it, it showed in everything she said or did.
