[Webster and Stone are waiting for Mr. Scratch]



Daniel Webster:
How long do we have to wait?



Jabez Stone:
'Til midnight.



Daniel Webster:
Oh, that's fine - then we have time to christen a jug. Old Medford rum: aahh, there's nothing like it. You know, somehow or other, waiting becomes wonderfully shorter with a jug. I saw an inchworm once take a drop of this and he stood right up on his hind legs and bit a bee!


[chuckles and takes a drink]



Daniel Webster:
Will you have a nip?



Jabez Stone:
No, there's no joy in it for me.



Daniel Webster:
Oh, come, come now. Just because you sold your soul to the devil that needn't make you a teetotaler.

[Ma Stone is reading out loud from the book of Job]



Mary Stone:
Give me the book, Ma. I'm going to read us something cheerful from the book of Ruth. That is, if you don't mind changing the lesson.



Ma Stone:
Land sakes, I don't mind. I never did hold much with Job, even if he is scripture. Took on too much to suit me. Course I don't want to malign the man; but he always sounded to me like he come from Massachusetts.

Mr. Scratch:
[Jabez, after noticing that one of Mr. Scratch's victims is now the size of a fly, asks him how big their souls are] Oh, I see what you mean; why, they vary... Now, in your case, I could probably keep you in my vest pocket.

Jabez Stone:
What do you have on your mind?



Daniel Webster:
You, Jabez Stone. You and a lot of poor farmers hereabouts... all good men of the earth and in trouble because of you. Or am I wrong about those contracts?



Jabez Stone:
Without me and my money they wouldn't have anything.



Daniel Webster:
They'd have a good neighbor - and that's worth more than anything else... much, much more.

Mr. Scratch:
You'll never be president - I'll see to that!
