Excerpt from Affinities: And Other Stories

Somebody ought to know the truth about the Devil's Island affair and I am going to tell it. The truth is generally either better or worse than the stories that get about. In this case it is somewhat better, though I am not proud of it.

It started with a discussion about married women having men friends. I said I thought it was a positive duty - it kept them up to the mark with their clothes and gave a sort of snap to things, with out doing any harm. There were six of us on the terrace at the Country Club at the time and we all felt the same way - that it was fun to have some body that everybody expected to put by one at dinners, and to sit out dances with and like the way one did ones hair, and to say nice things.
