Welcome back, kids.
And what have we seen the salt cellars, the silver salt cellars have been sold.
And sir, why were they sold?
By whom they were sold? Let’s find out.
A lot of questions.
Let us find out. Let’s find out. We are on module 2 of the Bishop’s Candlesticks and the main answers.
“Monseigneur, the Bishop told me this afternoon, while you were out, to take them to Monseigneur Gervais, who has often admired them and sell them for as much as I could.”
“But you had no right to do so without asking me.”
So, now what we have seen, kids, the Bishop had told the maid to sell them off. Okay, now we have one answer to our question.
“But, madam, Monseigneur the Bishop told me.”
“Monseigneur the Bishop is a-ahem. But, but what can he have wanted with the money. Why should the Bishop, a priest, need money.”
A very valid question. Let’s see what she says.
“Pardon, madam, but I think it was for Mere Gringoire.”
“Mere Gringoire indeed, Mere Gringoire. What, the old witch who lives at the top of the hill and who says she is bedridden and because she is too lazy to do any work.”
She is really very angry.
“And what did the Mere Gringoire want with the money, pray?”
Please, tell me why did she need money? And now she says.
“Madam, it was for the rent. Ohhh. The bailiff would not wait any longer and threatened to turn her out today if it were not paid. So, she sent little Jean to Monseigneur to ask for help and…”
Well, first, bailiff an officer of the court. Jean, name of a child here.
Absolutely and before she could continue Persome cut her short.
“Oh, mon Dieu, it is hopeless, hopeless. We shall have nothing left. His estate is sold, his savings have gone, his furniture, everything.”
She is really angry.
“Were it not for my little dot we should starve. And now my beautiful, beautiful salt cellars. Ah, it is too much, too much.”
Dot is dowry. Well sir, very good acting by the way, I enjoyed that bit. Now, she breaks down crying just like sir is doing. And now, here the maid says.
“Madam, I am sorry, if I had known.”
“Sorry and why pray? If Monseigneur the Bishop chooses to sell his salt cellars, he may do so, I suppose. Go and wash your hands, they are disgracefully dirty.”
She is still upset. Well she has a valid reason. Her belonging are being sold by her brother. And here the maid is…
She is back to yes madam, no madam.
And she goes away.
And look who is entering.
The main character in this amazing drama has just entered.
Please welcome him kids.
What is Persome going to tell him? She is pretty upset. Wait and watch my friends we are with The Bishop’s Candlesticks by Norman Mckinnell.
Right we will be back.
