She {Miss Kenton} came in holding a large vase of flowers and said with a smile: Mr. Stevens, I thought these would brighten your parlour a little. I beg your pardon, Miss Kenton? It seemed such a pity your room should be so dark and cold, Mr. Stevens, when its such bright sunshine outside. I thought these would enliven things a little. Thats very kind of you, Miss Kenton.
