Sarah. I quite agree with you I think it unforgiveable.
Mrs. Clement. And they are.
Mr. Penfield. We are very often forgetful.
Many of us th'nk of things.
How many times have you been defeated.
Turning and sleeping.
What did you say. I said I am closing the door.
Henrietta. John and I are bewildered.
So are William and Monica.
Henrietta. The difference between us is that we know what we want.
Oh do you.
Henrietta. Why are you shutting the door.
Because it is the habit. It really isn't necessary.
Then why do you do it.
Henrietta. Every one knows William and Monica.
Yes and every one knows how they started.
How did they start.
By quarreling with their landlord.
It was not a comfortable house in summer.
They knew this.
No they didn't.
You are quite right they didn't.
Go on and on.
The day I was settled down to making a fire I found that it came very easily. All I had to do was to be here when the wood came. We had not ordered any water.
