sick The bit of wall was about twelve feet square and the tapestry was about two thirds of that size The wall was of wainscot acd the tapestry was tacked to it It had not been cut with any curacy and its edges were fraying It was held by large tacks and their great heads protruded and stood out as as mud on patent leather boots I said to tho What is that carpet nailed up there fat on the wall or
