Arrangement in Black and White

The woman crossed the crowded room, caught hold of her host's ([houst] хозяин) arm and took him along with her. “Now I’ve got you!” she said. “Now you can’t get away!" “Why, hello,” said her host. “Well. How are you?”

“Oh, I’m fine,” she said. "Simply fine. Listen, I want to meet Walter Williams. Honestly, I just can’t be indifferent to that man. Oh, when he sings! Well, I said to my husband, “It’s a good thing for you Walter Williams is colored,1” I said, “or you’d have good reason to be jealous (Jdjelas] ревнивый).” I’d really love to meet him. I’d like to tell him I’ve heard him sing. Will you be an angel {'eindsalj and introduce me to him?’

"Why, certainly,” said her host. "I thought you’d met him already. The party’s for him as a matter of fact. But where is he?”

“He’s over there by the bookcase,” she said. “Let’s wait till those people finish talking to him. Well, I think you’re simply wonderful, having him meet all these white people, and all. Does he appreciate your kindness?”

“Why should he?” said her host.

“I think it’s really awfully nice of you,” she said. “I do. I don’t see why it isn’t perfectly all right to meet colored people. I haven’t any feeling at all about it. My husband — oh, he’s just the other way. Well, you know he comes from Virginia [va'dsinja] and you know how they are there.” ‘‘Did he come tonight?” said her host.

“No, he couldn’t”, she said. “I’m a regular grass widow (настоящая соломенная вдова) tonight. He was so tired out, he couldn’t move. Isn’t it a shame?”

“Ah,” said her host.
