An impoverished spinster and a lonely bachelor become friends, but when he drunkenly and clumsily proposes to her she avoids him, denying herself "the possibility of friendship with a man who genuinely likes her." In the Reporter (March 21, 1968), The Wild Cherry Tree (1968). Reprinted in From the Cradle to the Grave (1993).
