The Letter: A Play in Three Acts

Excerpt

SCENE: The scene is the sitting-room of the Crosbies' bungalow. Along the whole back of the scene runs the verandah, which is approached by steps from the garden. The room is comfortably but quite simply furnished with rattan chairs, in which are cushions; there are tables with bowls of flowers on them and pieces of Malay silver. On the walls are water-colour pictures, and here and there an arrangement of krises and parangs; there are horns of sladang and a couple of tigers' heads. Rattan mats on the floor. On the cottage piano a piece of music stands open. The room is lit by one lamp and this stands by a little table on which is LESLIE'S pillow lace. Another lamp hangs in the centre of the verandah.

When the Curtain rises the sound of a shot is heard and a cry from HAMMOND. He is seen staggering towards the verandah. LESLIEfires again.
