About this product
- DescriptionExcerpt from The Polly-William Club Scene - Upstairs library in the Weatherby home. (Miss Matilda in rocking chair by library table, knitting. Enter Dr. Strong from ather room, medicine grip in hand, frown on his face. Miss Matilda looks up and half rises, but he gently forces her back into chair.) Miss Matilda - Well, Doctor, how is Harriet this morning? She thought her-heart was becoming affected. That's why I sent for you so early in the day. (While Miss M. is speaking, Bridget O'Hara passes door, duster and broom in hand, looks into room, chuckles, hides behind curtain and listens.) Dr. S. - (irritably) Heart affected, fiddle-sticks! There isn't one blooming thing the matter with your sister, Matilda - t a thing, except an exaggerated ego. (Bridget looks out from curtain; throws up hands tragically at last two words.) Matilda Exaggerated what, Doctor? Dr. - Ego. By that I mean, Matilda, that she simply thinks too much about herself - pities herself, admires herself - imagines she has every ailment under the sun. (Bridget waves duster in high approval.) Matilda - (in shocked voice) But, Doctor Strong, you cant mean what you say. Think how long my poor dear sister has been bed-ridden. It has been fifteen years since she could leave her bed - ever since the night Frank passed away. Dr. - Fifteen years since she would leave her bed, you mean, Matilda.
