To have our own home will cost too much in the beginning. They're $18 to $25. That's too much for us, but that's okay.
Apartment buildings have nice three-room flats that rent for $8 a month.
A four-room flat is only about a dollar more. But they've got big lots where the girls can play and where Frances can hang clothes out to dry.
