/
Mr. Bunion: Well, Parson! you know I have but one! You are welcome to it for as long as you choose but perhaps you wouldn't -
Parson (phone): Oh! Anything will do if it's a strong one! I'll send a boy up for it. Thanking you, Mr. B!
/
Mr. Bunion: I'll bet he won't what to carry that old thing but he knows his business I'll send it up anyway, he's welcome--

Parson: Wait a minute, boy! Take it back with this note. Dear Mr. Bunion! Your kindness is appreciated! Since receiving your beautiful valise I have decided to not take one with me. Thanks just the same!
/
Mr. Bunion: Um! What a grand day it is! How fine it makes one feel! I believe I"ll go out and take a walk! I'm moody for one!

Mr. Bunion: What's this? Can't use it? Huh! I'll bet the Parson cussed a little for once in his life! Pshaw!
