Policeman B: We had no orders to go back to the station; we can stop along with you.

Sergeant: I don’t want you. There is nothing for you to do here.

Policeman B: You bade us to come back here and keep watch with you.

Sergeant: I’d sooner be alone. Would any man come this way and you making all that talk? It is better the place to be quiet.

Policeman B: Well, we’ll leave you the lantern anyhow. (Hands it to him.)

Sergeant: I don’t want it. Bring it with you.

Policeman B: You might want it. There are clouds coming up and you have the darkness of the night before you yet. I’ll leave it over here on the barrel. (Goes to barrel.)

Sergeant: Bring it with you I tell you. No more talk.
