Hereby presenting an excerpt from A Maryland Manor (1901) by Frederic Emory. It tells the story of today’s Free Friday Vintage Coloring Page which is book poster based on the frontspiece by West Clinedinst.
“When Lydia appeared in the doorway, the smokers, tilted back comfortably in large, rush-bottomed chairs, were well advanced in enjoyment of the weed. Each had a clay pipe with a long reed stem, and the atmosphere was thick with smoke from fragrant tobacco grown on the estate. Lydia waited, mischievously, for the anathema Uncle Josias would be swift to pronounce, but the old fellow merely grunted and gave a longer pull at his pipe.”
