HARRY, MARY, IVY, VIOLET, GERALD, CHARLES
Good evening, Mary: aren't you dressed yet?
How do you think that Harry is looking?
Why, who could have pulled those curtains apart?
[Pulls them together.]
Very well, I think, after such a long journey;
You know what a rush he had to be here in time
For his mother's birthday.
Mary, my dear,
Did you arrange these flowers? Just let me change them.
You don't mind, do you? I know so much about flowers;
Flowers have always been my passion.
You know I had my own garden once, in Cornwall,
When I could afford a garden; and I took several prizes
With my delphiniums. In fact, I was rather an authority.
Good evening, Mary. You've seen Harry, I see.
