Comfortably ensconced in his splendid east side apartment, the urbane Terry awaits the arrival of his brother-in-law, Joe, who has come to New York for a brief visit. He is concerned at Joe’s tardiness, until he realizes that Joe, distrustful of elevators, has walked up the 22 flights from the ground floor. When he arrives, winded from lugging his heavy suitcase, Joe makes it clear that city ways are not his. He speaks of his mother, with whom he stayed when the others went off to build new lives, and of the cord which even her death has not broken. When he reached New York his first impulse was to send her a wire advising of his safe arrival, and when Terry goes off to dress for dinner he tries to call long distance--but the number no longer answers, the call cannot be put through. Refusing Terry’s invitation to join them for dinner, Joe picks up his bulging suitcase (weighted down with the keepsakes he cannot bear to leave behind) and trudges slowly off to find a hotel--some quiet place where he, and his memories, can be safe until he is free to return to the only reality he knows and can trust.
