An ORDERLY,  MAJOR VON TELLHEIM,  MINNA,  FRANZISKA


  Fran.  (seeing the ORDERLY). Hist, Major!
  1
  Maj. T.  (to the ORDERLY). Who do you want?  2
  Ord.  I am looking for Major von Tellheim. Ah! you are the Major, I see. I have to give this letter from his Majesty the King  (taking one out of his bag).  3
  Maj. T.  To me?  4
  Ord.  According to the direction.  5
  Min.  Franziska, do you hear? The Chevalier spoke the truth after all.  6
  Ord.  (whilst TELLHEIM takes the letter). I beg your pardon, Major; you should properly have had it yesterday, but I could not find you out. I learnt your address this morning only from Lieutenant Riccaut, on parade.  7
  Fran.  Do you hear, my lady?—That is the Chevalier’s minister. “What is the name of de ministre-bout dere, on de broad place?”  8
  Maj. T.  I am extremely obliged to you for your trouble.  9
  Ord.  It is my duty, Major.  (Exit.)  10
