Steinway upright piano
was purchased for nine-year-old Eudora by her mother
of the housekeeping money, which she added to by buying a Jersey cow, milking
her, and selling part of the milk to the neighbors on our street, in quart bottles,
which I delivered on my bicycle.
Over the years
Eudora, Edward, and her brother Walter's two daughters and their children played
the piano. The painting
over the piano, one of three commissioned by Welty of her parents, portrays Welty's
mother in the garden.
