Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Here I am in Washington at last and there's the monument where I am bound for. They say, its a half a thousand feet and more in height. Well--
/
Mr. Bunion: Its funny I never throughout of this Washington Monument before. Better at this late date, than never. Oh, but this valise will soon come to a finish, now.
/
Mr. Bunion: Like everything else that will benefit me, I must work like balsas to accomplish it. But I'll soon be up there.
/
Mr. Bunion: It seems like a shame to drop this poor old valise clear down five hundred feet to that stone pavement below. But its a duty I must perform. Ha! Ha!
/
Mr. Bunion: Good bye! old sorrow box, you will soon be nothing but so much sawdust. I hope now to see happier days.
/
Man1: Yes, that be the George Washington stature, or, ez I mean ter say, monument right there.
Man2: Darn high ain't it? Gosh!
/
Man: What was that, Tobe?
