ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- Florence's first season was such a spectacular success

that we are now intending an entire program

of new activities for her, aren't we dearest?

- Yes, mother.

- Not that she will neglect any opportunity

to share her advantages with those less fortunate.

And what about you Josephine?

- Oh, my scribbling keeps me too busy for charity schemes.

- Do you mean drawing dear?

- Oh, Josephine doesn't draw.

She writes romances in a general way with a dash

of the spectacular thrown in as a makeweight.

- I see. Does that amuse you dear?

- It pays me.

- And how do you fare with your languages?

- Oh, I don't know a word of anything, only English, and

I can't keep at any sort of study and I can't bear French.

It's such a slippery, silly sort of language.

Don't you think?
