SCENE—Ladies’ Cabin.

Miss Lamine writing on the sofa; Margaret and Sally

Marg.

“Where’s the cat now?”

Sally.

“In Missus’s state‐room.”

Marg.

“She ’ll get away, as sure as she’s alive.”

(A groan from Sally.)

Marg.

“Why don’t you tie her up?”

Sally.

“I vow I will, if I can get a bit ’o cord.”

Marg.

“Only, perhaps, your mistress will tie you up, if the cat happens not to like it.”

Sally.

“Perhaps she will: only then she must get a pretty strong cord; that I can tell her.”
