Fritz slept up above, across the hall from the plant rooms; my room was on the second floor, the same floor as Wolfe’s, a fair-sized room in front with its own bath and a pair of windows.

Also there was a colored one called September Morn, of a young woman apparently with no clothes on and her hair hanging down in front, but that was in the bathroom.
