Combayne Fallstoward agreed to meet us here in the porch of her house. So we waited...
Combayne Fallstoward was immortally nineteen. It was she who wrote the "Boulders of Flight". It was published about the time she celebrated her nineteenth birthday for the thirtieth time. After its publication, she wore black and lived with her dog at Merle in attempted isolation. The house at Merle had been owned in the nineteenth century by the American historian Austin Carter Scops. Scops had two galleries, or wings, built onto the original and rather prosaic farmhouse that he had inherited from his grandmother, and here he displayed the badly scarred and fractured statues of Hermes and Eros, that he had acquired from various European collections. It was suggested that he stole most of them from public gardens, and the scarring and fracturing had been caused by his unceremonious haste in removing them from their niches and pedestals after dark.
After his building improvements, Scops had grandly called his house 'The Winged Samothrace' in emulation of that statue now in the Louvre. This name was perhaps not unnaturally accredited to Combayne Fallstoward, the house's new occupant, apparently much to her annoyance, but it did not go unnoticed that she signed her letters and manuscripts on more than one occasion with the initials WS.
The Directory classified Combayne as a young female woman speaking Untowards and suffering from timidity.
