BARTLETT HERE.

IT’S ROBINSON, SIR. THE CORONER DIDN’T ARRIVE ON THE THE TRAIN.

WHERE’S THOMSON NOW?

STILL IN THE WATER. THE UNDERTAKERS CAME LAST NIGHT. THEY WON’T DO ANYTHING UNTIL THEY GET THE ORDER FROM THE CORONER.

TELL THEM I GAVE THE ORDER AND TO START RIGHT AWAY. GET THAT DOCTOR ON LITTLE WAP TO INSPECT THE BODY.

YES, SIR.

GET HIM BURIED, PRONTO! TELL ROWE AND DICKSON TO DIG THE GRAVE.  WE’LL PAY THEM OUT OF PETTY.

YES, SIR. WHAT ABOUT THE FUNERAL CEREMONY?

SOMEONE’S SURE TO HAVE A COMMON PRAYER BOOK. USE THAT. ASK ED COLSON.

YES, SIR. I HAVE ONE. I’D BETTER BE GETTING BACK.  GOOD DAY.

GOOD DAY.

ON HOOK
