THE PRIVY By Cecelia Lyden

It was a very warm and humid day Wednesday, but the many large trees on President Buchanan's estate, Wheatland, provided us with enough shade and breezes to make it comfortable. The grounds were lovely and the peroid architecture made the buildings so interesting. This charming outbuilding, surrounded by daylilies and bathed in dappled sunlight, caught my eye immediately. I was surprised to learrn that it was a privy. I have never painted an outdoor bathroom before-probably never will again, either.
