68. THE LUISES’ FLAT
Amy: Whatyou think, Alan? Bob like the Luises’ flat? Can we really recommend it to him? he comfortable there?
Alan: I think, he . It’s a nice flat. I’m sure itsuit him.
Amy: But the hallso small and dark and the roomsrather cold in winter.
Alan: Oh, yes. And those fire places, so old-fashioned.
Amy: You’ll freeze there in winter. After a long stay in Africa he’ll frightfully cold there.
Alan: n’t worry, Amy. He won’t freeze, he can use electric fires.
Amy: Electric fires won’t good enough, I’m afraid. Those rooms quite big you know, Alan.
Alan: Oh, well. He can have paraffin stoves as well, I suppose.
Amy: And what about the floors in that flat? n’t they in a
rather bad state?
Alan: Oh, whatit matter? Theregood carpets in the rooms. I’m sure the Luises won’t take the carpets to Canada with them.
Amy: Well, perhaps you’re right. Oh, that reminds me. The Luisesonly going to Canada for one year. Bob want to rent a room for one year only?
Alan: Why not? I’m sure he won’t stay in England for long. He’ll soon away again, I expect. There’s another thing. I’m afraid, Mr Luismake a lot of fuss about that china and pictures.
Amy: He won’t, but his wife.
Alan: Oh, yes. Shean awful woman. Still, let’s hope Bobmanage her. After all he’s experienced with wild animals in Africa.
