I need some hired help for my own self

Handwritten page of a diary dated May 4, 1959

if you talk in there, you hear a echo.

So all the other tour people stare and stare at the pretty cherubs on toppa that window, but I ask, what is that brown thing hangin beside it lookin like a oldstyle telephone. She tells me that is a telephone of sorts exceptin it goes straight to the servants room in case you need a glass of ice water or to get your hair brushed out.

I swear you can keep your fancy windows but I need to get me one of them telephones that dials up the butler.
