The Café. Christmas Eve. Present are VAUQUIN, MME. SOPHIE VAUQUIN, M.and MME. STEIN, GERARD, BOUBARDand CHRISTINE. They are packing bags.

So little . . .
Too much. God knows how much of the way we're going to have to walk. . . . Everything in one bag.
But you said a truck--and then the boat from Casablanca. . . .
Transportation is not guaranteed in Africa this season. . . . The lighter we travel, the surer we are of getting to Cairo.
(MME. VAUQUINsighs and starts discarding things in a neat little pile.)
