No phone, no car

Two things that stand out in these pages are the simplicity of life. They have no phone; no car. Mary goes over to Bosh's to make a call; they get with Albert about driving them "home," meaning over through Morrow County and down to her mother's place, presumedly still on Chambers Road, Porter Township, Delaware County.

And there are simple pleasures of this era; simple things like the joy of beating her husband at cards, and eating new tomatoes for dinner and planning for a drive out to the country, far away from the bustling city of Marion with its steam engines, factories, busy streets and close neighbors.
