Sloppy copy makes me crazy. I completely get it.
Clarissa, I cannot clearly recall, but you may know: was the Home mentioned in And Ladies of the Club? The rope yard was, obviously, and the pillars at the one estate. But I cannot for the life of me remember if the Home was mentioned or if perhaps it was rewritten as a hospital or something. Reading And Ladies of the Club is kind of like reading a map; the detail is so rich. It was fun to eat lunch at the Oasis Cafe with my mom, for example, and know we were in the old lecture hall. I'm thinking the Home was built right at about the time And Ladies of the Club was happening, and it would be astonishing if it didn't make its way into the book because it is one of THE landmarks in town -- all of the others seem to have made it in. I probably need to reread it.
