EXCERPT:

“Miss Leslie,” he began hurriedly, “I have but a moment to spare. I want to say something in that moment. Will you be my wife? I haven’t had time to make love to you in the ordinary way, but I really do love you. Talk quick, please–those fellows are clubbing the stuffing out of Union Pacific.”



COMMENTS:

No story at all here, just a set up and a wonderful trick ending. This would make a fine song…but not a piece for the theatre.
