I AND MY CHIMNEY - Herman Melville

This quote was added by maberson
Most houses, here, are but one and a half stories high; few exceed two. That in which I and my chimney dwell, is in width nearly twice its height, from sill to eaves - which accounts for the magnitude of its main content - besides showing that in this house, as in this country at large, there is abundance of space, and to spare, for both of us.
