PAUL WERNER,  FRANZISKA


  Fran.  Well, Mr. Sergeant!
  1
  Wer.  Little woman, if I come again, shall I too come smartened up a bit?  2
  Fran.  Come as you please: my eyes will find no fault with you. But my ears will have to be so much the more on their guard. Twenty fingers, all full of rings. Ah! ah! Mr. Sergeant!  3
  Wer.  No, little woman; that is just what I wished to say to you. I only rattled on a little. There is nothing in it. One ring is quite enough for a man. Hundreds and hundreds of times I have heard the Major say—“He must be a rascally soldier, who can mislead a young girl.” So think I too, little woman. You may trust to that! I must be quick and follow him. A good appetite to you.  (Exit.)  4
  Fran.  The same to you! I really believe, I like that man!  (Going in, she meets MINNA coming out.)  5
