Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Now I'll fasten a staple on the bottom so that the chain can be attached! The spring works well!
/
Mr. Bunion: It can not Miss fire! Theodore! I'd like to show you just how it works! Can I?
Theodore: Sure! We will go in the jungle!
/
Mr. Bunion: If I can prove its value to you, I'd like to give it to you!
Theodore: Well if it does all you claim for it I might consider your offer, Mr. Bunion!
/
Mr. Bunion: You open it in this fashion.
Theodore: After, of course, fastening it by the chain to the tree!
Theodore: yes, I see. Placing a bacon rind in as a bait, I see!
/
Mr. Bunion: You do not have to mention me or the valise in your writings!
/
Mr. Bunion: This can be a private matter!
/
Theodore: Delighted.
/
Mrs. Bunion: Here's your valise. I dusted it! Don't you know it is late? Why are you sitting there?
Mr. Bunion: I was just thinking thats all. Just thinking!
