All listen in silence. Is the doctor here? Where are you from? The factory. There is nothing for it, then, but to go. Yes, it is too bad, really. You must come back to dinner from the factory. No, I won't be able to do that. It will be too late. However, let me bid you good-bye, ladies and gentlemen.
My estate is small, but if you are interested in such things I should like to show you a nursery and seed-bed whose like you will not find within a thousand miles of here. My place is surrounded by government forests.
