What is the meaning of the word parlour ?

YESTERDAY Rebecca Mason,
In the parlour by herself,

Broke a handsome china basin,
Plac'd upon the mantel-shelf.

Quite alarm'd, she thought of going

Very quietly away,
Not a single person knowing

Of her being there that day.

But Rebecca recollected

She was taught deceit to shun ;
And the moment she reflected,

Told her mother what was done ;

Who commended her behaviour,
Lov'd her better, and forgave her.

The name of it is "Rebecca's afterthought"

The parlour would be the sitting room (living room).
