"Gretta tells me you're not going to take a cab back to Monkstown tonight, Gabriel," said Aunt Kate. "O, now, Mr. Browne, I'm sure the doctor never ordered anything of the kind."

"Here's Freddy." Her voice was veiled and sad. Gabriel heard his wife answer yes and saw her come down towards them. Though she was stout in build and stood erect, her slow eyes and parted lips gave her the appearance of a woman who did not know where she was or where she was going.

It shot through Gabriel's mind that Miss Ivors was not there and that she had gone away discourteously: and he said with confidence in himself: "O, do go, Gabriel," she cried. He did not know how to meet her charge. Because they could not get the voices to sing them: that was why. Mr. Browne could go back farther still, to the old Italian companies that used to come to Dublin -- Tietjens, Ilma de Murzka, Campanini, the great Trebelli, Giuglini, Ravelli, Aramburo. He walked rapidly towards the door. "Well, we usually go to France or Belgium or perhaps Germany," said Gabriel awkwardly.

"It takes Teddy to find out the really good things," said Mr. Browne familiarly to the table. "Gretta! " Just... here's a little...." "Well, you know, every year I go for a cycling tour with some fellows and so----" I'm quite well able to take care of myself."

Mrs. Malins was helped down the front steps by her son and Mr. Browne and, after many manoeuvres, hoisted into the cab.

One boot stood upright, its limp upper fallen down: the fellow of it lay upon its side. "Someone you were in love with?" The others spoke only a few words, pointing out some building or street.

I never knew rightly." "Well," said Gabriel, "if it comes to that, you know, Irish is not my language." "For me," said Aunt Kate, who had been picking a bone, "there was only one tenor.

"I'm done schooling this year and more." I never heard your voice sound so fresh and so... so clear and fresh, never." He longed to be master of her strange mood. If she would only turn to him or come to him of her own accord! We both have a pair now. He had taken up a wrong tone. He longed to recall to her those moments, to make her forget the years of their dull existence together and remember only their moments of ecstasy. "It's a very nice air," said Mary Jane. It sounded so genuine that a little colour struggled into Aunt Julia's face as she bent to replace in the music-stand the old leather-bound songbook that had her initials on the cover. Aunt Julia was an inch or so the taller. Great applause greeted Mary Jane as, blushing and rolling up her music nervously, she escaped from the room. "And may we have some refreshment, too, Miss Morkan?" After graduating from The Citadel, Conroy taught English in Beaufort, South Carolina; while there he met and married Barbara Jones, a young widow of the Vietnam War who was pregnant with her second child. After a pause she asked: Her face, healthier than her sister's, was all puckers and creases, like a shrivelled red apple, and her hair, braided in the same old-fashioned way, had not lost its ripe nut colour. Those were the days, he said, when there was something like singing to be heard in Dublin. "It has fallen to my lot this evening, as in years past, to perform a very pleasing task but a task for which I am afraid my poor powers as a speaker are all too inadequate." "He has been laid on here like the gas," said Aunt Kate in the same tone, "all during the Christmas." Birds were twittering in the ivy and the sunny web of the curtain was shimmering along the floor: he could not eat for happiness. "I think her voice has greatly improved." His eyes moved to the chair over which she had thrown some of her clothes. He used to sing that song, The Lass of Aughrim. "She's getting on her things, Gabriel," said Aunt Kate. "O, most people give some donation to the monastery when they leave." The middle of the room was occupied by two square tables placed end to end, and on these Aunt Julia and the caretaker were straightening and smoothing a large cloth. "Gretta, dear, what are you thinking about?" She would turn and look at him.... The difficulty was to know where to drop Mr. Browne along the route, and Aunt Kate, Aunt Julia and Mary Jane helped the discussion from the doorstep with cross-directions and contradictions and abundance of laughter. He thought of how she who lay beside him had locked in her heart for so many years that image of her lover's eyes when he had told her that he did not wish to live. The piece ended with a trill of octaves in the treble and a final deep octave in the bass. As an adult, Conroy suffered from depression, had several breakdowns and contemplated suicide.

She had been told that Freddy had come and that he was nearly all right. Aunt Julia smiled broadly and murmured something about compliments as she released her hand from his grasp. "Yes, but why?" "Now, isn't he a terrible fellow!" His face was fleshy and pallid, touched with colour only at the thick hanging lobes of his ears and at the wide wings of his nose. Then he recognised Freddy Malins' laugh. "I won't hear of it," she cried. "Eight," said Gabriel. She had no longer any grace of attitude, but Gabriel's eyes were still bright with happiness. "No, tired: that's all." "Now, I ask you," she said almost testily, "where is Julia going? Gabriel recognised the prelude. Aunt Kate wrinkled her brows and made signs to the others to drop the subject. As long as this one roof shelters the good ladies aforesaid -- and I wish from my heart it may do so for many and many a long year to come -- the tradition of genuine warm-hearted courteous Irish hospitality, which our forefathers have handed down to us and which we in turn must hand down to our descendants, is still alive among us."

When everyone had been well served Gabriel said, smiling: The smile passed away from Gabriel's face. She was walking on before him with Mr. Bartell D'Arcy, her shoes in a brown parcel tucked under one arm and her hands holding her skirt up from the slush. The smile soon faded from Aunt Julia's face and her mirthless eyes were directed towards her nephew's face. "Why should I be ashamed of myself?" asked Lily. Mr. Browne led his charges thither and invited them all, in jest, to some ladies' punch, hot, strong and sweet. What about him?" "O, Miss Daly, you're really awfully good, after playing for the last two dances, but really we're so short of ladies tonight." But Lily seldom made a mistake in the orders, so that she got on well with her three mistresses. He stood, holding her head between his hands. A look of perplexity appeared on Gabriel's face.

"Close the door, somebody. Malins." Perhaps her thoughts had been running with his. "But I may tell you I doubt it strongly." "And do you mean to say," asked Mr. Browne incredulously, "that a chap can go down there and put up there as if it were a hotel and live on the fat of the land and then come away without paying anything?" They had hardly gone when Aunt Julia wandered slowly into the room, looking behind her at something. She did not feel in the least hungry and she had already overstayed her time. Gabriel had not gone to the door with the others. He was undecided about the lines from Robert Browning, for he feared they would be above the heads of his hearers. The tears gathered more thickly in his eyes and in the partial darkness he imagined he saw the form of a young man standing under a dripping tree. "Who's playing up there?" "Thirty years ago I hadn't a bad voice as voices go." When the cab drew up before the hotel, Gabriel jumped out and, in spite of Mr. Bartell D'Arcy's protest, paid the driver. Had she really any life of her own behind all her propagandism? "But yet," continued Gabriel, his voice falling into a softer inflection, "there are always in gatherings such as this sadder thoughts that will recur to our minds: thoughts of the past, of youth, of changes, of absent faces that we miss here tonight. Mr. Clancy is coming, and Mr. Kilkelly and Kathleen Kearney. But Miss Ivors, who had put on her hat and was buttoning her cloak, would not stay.

He would say, alluding to Aunt Kate and Aunt Julia: "Ladies and Gentlemen, the generation which is now on the wane among us may have had its faults but for my part I think it had certain qualities of hospitality, of humour, of humanity, which the new and very serious and hypereducated generation that is growing up around us seems to me to lack." Freddy Malins bade the Misses Morkan good-evening in what seemed an offhand fashion by reason of the habitual catch in his voice and then, seeing that Mr. Browne was grinning at him from the sideboard, crossed the room on rather shaky legs and began to repeat in an undertone the story he had just told to Gabriel. They would think that he was airing his superior education. It was Gretta who had nursed her during all her last long illness in their house at Monkstown. He asked what they did it for.
