MAJOR VON TELLHEIM, JUST
Maj. T. Just! see that we get out of this house directly! The politeness of this strange lady affects me more than the churlishness of the host. Here, take this ringthe only thing of value which I have leftof which I never thought such a use. Pawn it! get eighty louis dors for it: our hosts bill can scarcely amount to thirty. Pay him, and remove my things . Ah, where? Where you will. The cheaper the inn, the better. You will find me in the neighbouring coffee-house. I am going; you will see to it all properly?
