Sample Text:

(Enter King George’s men)

Reader 7:        If you meet King George’s men, dressed in blue and red,
You be careful what you say and mindful of what is said.

Reader 8:        If they call you

King George’s man 1: “pretty maid,”

Reader 8:        And chuck you ‘neath the chin,

                        Don’t you tell where no one is, nor yet where no one’s been!

(Exit King George’s men)

Reader 9:        Knocks and footsteps round the house — whistles after dark —
You’ve no call for running out till the house-dogs bark.

(Pointing to two dogs)

                         Reader 10:      Trusty’s here, and Pincher’s here, and see how dumb they lie —
                         They don’t fret to follow when the Gentlemen go by!
