Excerpt from The Immortal Charlie Ross

Scene First. A Country View. A Roadside Tavern, L 2 E, Lights Up. Enter from house Mosher and Douglass talking.

Douglass, (4 C.) Very well, Mosher, then that's settled. But you see, my lad, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, and -

Mosher, R. C. Yes - I've read that somewhere - and I never forget what I have once read.

Doug. As I was saying: The first thing to do is to get this boy Ross in our grasp without his brother being present, but that's a difficult thing, seeing as how they're always together.

Mosh. (carelessly lighting a cigar.) Hem! That's easy as thinking.

Doug. You think so do you? Well, I hope you're right in your conjecture.

Mosh. There is not much business done about here, the place is lonely enough at all times, so we need'nt fear much from interruption.

Doug. Well, you're right. We want money, it wont come to us, so we'll go to it in a quiet business-like way, you know as soon as the child is missed there'll be a general flutter, splutter and outcry. A reward will be offered, if it suits us the child will be suddenly found in the usual way, and but, confound it! Suppose its put in the hands of the detectives?

Mosh. Dam the cops! 'tis them we have most to fear. But if it does come to that, why, I've read somewhere that young bodies don't hold more breath than is needed to sustain life; so if the worst comes to the worst, why a business-like manipulation of the throat, thus: (imitates strangling,) you catch the idea?

Doug. I tumble. (Laughter without, R.) Hallo! (looks off,) as I live, it is our prize!

Mosh. Well, so it is! How jolly! He comes to us quite handy like.

Doug. Now mind - you attend to the boy Charley; I'll keep the other out of the way. The father is wealthy, and won't mind coming down handsomely with the solid; and that's what we coves hunger for. (Shouts without of "Gee-up gee-up.")

Mosh. Here they come! Stand aside for awhile. (They go up to Inn.)

Charlie and Walter Ross run in, laughing. Walter has a stick in his mouth, to which is attached a cord.

Charlie (laughing heartily). Ha! ha! ha! What a lazy horsee you be, Wallie.

Walter. You are a hard driver, Charlie; you must give your horse some rest, you know.
