Edward Pierce:
What exactly are you constructing?



Emily Trent:
We thought a water wheel. It will be so delightful, especially when there will be the rusted curve of the water wheel itself. Don't you agree?



Edgar Trent:
We are building the rusted wheel at considerable expense.



Emily Trent:
It is constructed of previously rusted metal, the craftsmen are most ingenious. And of course we must wait for the weeds to grow up around the site before it takes on the proper appearance.



Edward Pierce:
Oh I'm sure it'll be a handsome ruin.



Edgar Trent:
Where is Elizabeth?



Emily Trent:
I have passed many pleasant hours here, watching the workman fit each piece into its precise slot. Such skill!



Edward Pierce:
They screw it together do they?



Edgar Trent:
No, bolt it actually. With long bolts, fitted tightly.



Emily Trent:
Yes. *Long* bolts, fitted tightly.



Edward Pierce:
I've just returned from America, a country of many prominent erections.



Emily Trent:
It *is* exciting to see things come together, so long as the quality does not suffer.



Edward Pierce:
Tight-fitting joints, that's the secret.



Emily Trent:
It's *so* rare these days.



Edward Pierce:
[It] depends on the skill of the workman, of course.



Emily Trent:
And he *must* have the proper tools.
