SCENE: Garden of The Bee-Hive three weeks later. -- At back a high wall, with a posterngate, centre, showing a distance with housetops and trees. -- Right, an entrance to the Inn, with steps. Another door below the steps, leading to a cellarage. Left, wall covered with vines. A little to right of centre, in front, a large vine-covered arbor, open, front and back; the sides trellised. Within, a rude table with two benches, another seat outside; upon it a trencher with beans and carrots. Between the arbor and the garden-wall, left, a row of hop-vines trained on poles, planted thickly. Other shrubbery. A bench behind the hop-vines. Summer afternoon.
Discovered at rise, GABRIEL ANDREW, standing moodily in the entrance of the arbor, as if waiting for some one. Enter, hurriedly, from the Inn, BAME.
