Howards End: An Ivy-Covered Cottage in the Country

Scene from "Howards End" Dialogue of Henry Wilcox "Ruth’s last wish when she dies is scribbled on a piece of scrap paper on her death bed: Howards End should go to her new friend, Miss Margaret Schlegel." Her husband Henry and children are understandably baffled by this request, and a little angry. " Why would she leave the house to someone outside the family?" Her daughter Evie rips the paper up and tosses it into the fire.
