Beside the Red Brick Wall

From an original oil painting by John Blake Bergers in the Willa Cather Foundation Collections & Archives at the National Willa Cather Center

"Every evening when he came back to the store after supper, Dillon had one of his clerks bring two arm-chairs out to the wide sidewalk that ran beside the red brick wall. In these chairs the two friends would spend the evening. I often sat on the edge of the sidewalk with my feet hanging down and played jacks by the hour when there was moonlight. I suppose there were moonless nights; but I remember them all as flooded by the rich indolence of a full moon, or a half-moon set in uncertain blue."

—Inspired by Willa Cather's "Two Friends"
