Transcription

Mr. Bunion: So, this is your photograph album is it? Um--
Hattie: Yes, Uncle! Those are all friends of mine, or rather, photos of friends of mine! There is all I have to remember them by,--is that album! They are scattered now--
/
Mr. Bunion: Married, I suppose, and gone away.
Hattie: Yes! There is Miss Rose, she married Mr. Oak, but they separated a year afterwards. She went to California and He, I think, is up in Maine somewhere, or there abouts.
/
Mr. Bunion: There is Miss Lily, isn't it?
Hattie: Yes, Uncle. She married two years ago and lived quite happily. She married a Mr. Goodfellow a splendid young man. Well, you know she was very nice--
/
Mr. Bunion: Have they any children, Hattie?
Hattie: Oh! No! They separated. She went down into Mexico somewhere and he is away up in Alaska, --in the Klondike. I believe. I don't know how they are doing, Uncle!
/
Mr. Bunion: Isn't this Mr. Cutdimen here?
Hattie: yes, it's a splendid picture of him, too! He married a Miss Flower, but did not live happy with her. He is up in Labrador, on a whaling vessel, and she is in Australia, I think.--
/
Mr. Bunion: You are going to be married soon, aren't you Hattie?
Hattie: No, our engagement is off. My intended joined the Navy, went away with the fleet, deserted it in India or Egypt and never came back.
/
Mr. Bunion: Well. I must go, Hattie. I must keep moving!
Hattie: I have a nice fellow who thinks a great deal of me here. But he is poor. With no prospects and also is in poor health-is not very strong, you understand.
/
Woman: I never did like you!!!
Man: That goes both ways! I was crazy when I married you!
Mr. Bunion: I wonder if Hattie sees and hears such things?
