M o t h e r . And whose fault? f a t h e r . See, you’re accusing me! m o t h e r . Well, you see, the children did want to be useful citi­ zens, which would have made me the mother of useful citizens; a very useful mother. But, as it is now all we can hope for is the preservation of our lives. And since we are getting old and shall lose them anyway, what is the use? f a t h e r . Oh, so you are blaming me. m o t h e r . What good is it to blame; what’s done is done. f a t h e r . Y ou blame so you can find the wound.

Each man for himself. That they decorate the household, it is well. But should they rise in expectations that weigh upon me, falling from decorative amusement, I turn a valve in my heart and cast them from my sympathies.

F a t h e r . ) Maybe they wish to sur­ render . . m o t h e r . What does it say? f a t h e r . It asks for our unconditional surrender . . m o t h e r . What does that mean? m o th e r. fa th e r.

No no, nor was it meant to be, no more than you were meant to be in the beginning . . f a t h e r . No no, it flatters nothing; nor does it extend by any means native luck, the indigenous resplendency .
