Transcription

Mr. Bunion: Oh! Look at this poor blind man coming! I feel ashamed when I see such misfortune.
/
Mr. Bunion: Sit down, my dear sir, and rest yourself a bit!
Man: Oh! Thank you! You are so kind! I am weary.
/
Mr. Bunion: Yes, I suppose you are! Poor fellow! Sit down!
Man: Being blind I am unable to travel fast and I have so far to go.
/
Mr. Bunion: Are you totally blind? Can't you see at all?
Man: Yes, I am totally blind! I can see nothing! All is darkness! Yes I can--say.--
/
Mr. Bunion: Gracious! Totally blind, no sense of seeing anything at all!
Man: Oh! I will take that back, I can see or father reel in a strange way, pleasent [sic] or disagreeable surroundings.
/
Mr. Bunion: Yes, eh. Huh. you, um, you huh, I oh! Eh!
Man: I see something there, that is, I feel that some obstacle is there. I know we are near something disagreeable.
/
Mr. Bunion: Sense of touch I suppose, eh?
Man: No! Not exactly. While I am totally blind I can see you have a burden or some kind, if nothing more than Dull Care.
/
Mr. Bunion: Come on! We'll go along! I'll assist you. There are some things that even a blind man can see um! Come on!
Man: It feel like rain! I think we are going to have a storm.
