Excerpt from What Would Mrs. Macthinkar Say?: A Comedietta Curtain goes up to the tes of a hand-organ, loud and strident. Reginald is seen in a rolling chair, with pillows and afghan. Owen is attending him. They are discovered at the left upper part of the stage, where a window is seen or suggested. Reg. (Whining most dismally.) Take me away; oh, do take me away from that ise! Ow. Yes, sir; I will, sir. (He wheels the chair down to the center.) 'T is awful music, sir. Reg. Close the window, Owen; please do. You must want me to die! Call that music! (Owen flies to dose the window.) Don't shake the floor so. Don't make so much ise. You kw I can't stand ise. Don't the doctor say so, you big brute? Ow. He does, sir. The sound of the organ dies away as if in the distance. Reg. Is the Italian going away? Ow. (Goes very lightly to make an observation.) He is, sir, - him and the other monkey. Reg. Oh, don't try to be funny. You kw I can't endure that when I am so weak. Don't I hear ather ise? Ow. 'T is only a horse, sir. Reg. How can you say only? You kw the tread of a horse is dreadful - simply dreadful! Oh, dear! I believe the horse is stopping. Ow. 'T is sir. 'T is Doctor Macthinkar gettin' out of it. Reg. No, , , ! Out of the carriage, you mean. Ow. Yes, sir. The horse never c'd get out of the carriage, sir. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
