Bone clean

. . . I was conducted to an airy chamber on the third floor, bone clean and well if sparsely furnished with a good charpoy,* leather chair, table, wash-stand, rug on the floor and leather curtain on the arrow-slit window — I’ve stayed in country inns at home that were less decent and comfortable.

* Native frame-and-cord bedstead.
