Act I
 
Scene X
 
 
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 ring—the only thing of value which I have left—of which I never thought such a use. Pawn it! get eighty louis d’ors for it: our host’s 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?

  Just.  Have no fear, Major!  2
  Maj. T.  (comes back). Above all things, do not let my pistols be forgotten, which hang beside the bed.  3
  Just.  I will forget nothing.  4
  Maj. T.  (comes back again). Another things: bring your dog with you too. Do you hear, Just?  5
