PERRON: Alexandre! Alexandre! ALEXANDRE: Good day, my friend. You seem distraught. PERRON: Distraught! It was the strangest thing! But sit here with me. Do. I have something to tell you. EXANDRE: I regret exceedingly, but a stupid engagement.... Later, perhaps. PERRON: No! No! I insist! Only a great mind like yours can explain the strange thing which has happened. ALEXANDRE: Ah, in that case-what is a mere business affair compared with divine philosophy? Far from being pressé, friend Perron, I have an eternity at your service. Holley, Horace. The Telegram. Read-Aloud Plays. Mitchell Kennerley, 1916.
