Gus, plainly, was not yet accustomed to the sense of ownership, and he hung with eagerness upon his guest's expressions of approval. After a tour of inspection the men wound up in the library an absurd misnomer under the circumstances, inasmuch as the shelves were entirely bare except for Allie's dog-eared school books and there, before a blazing gas log, they discussed the miracle.

The next day he entered the washhouse of Chy Fook as an assistant, and on the following Friday was sent with a basket of clean clothes to Chy Fook's several clients. It was the usual foggy afternoon as he climbed the long windswept hill of California Street one of those bleak, gray intervals that made the summer a misnomer to any but the liveliest San Franciscan fancy.

It is, then, clear that no specific aesthetic pleasure need be sought. The very phrase, indeed, is a misnomer, since all pleasure is qualitatively the same, and differentiated only by the specific activities which it accompanies.
