LORD MANSFIELD(fury)

Captain Sir John Lindsay, do you

find me a fool? She is a MULATTO!

LORD MANSFIELD’S blood boils, he rages towards LINDSAY. LADY

MANSFIELD restrains him. LINDSAY is red with humiliation.

CAPTAIN SIR JOHN LINDSAYI have no wife to take her...In a

few hours I am to captain a

voyage to the Indies on a

longitude experiment.

(strained)

From there, who knows!!! It is

not in my gift to question the

King and his Royal Navy.

LORD MANSFIELDYou keep in mind my position..?

My reputation...?

CAPTAIN SIR JOHN LINDSAYSir...

LORD MANSFIELDThen have some sense of propriety

boy...and understand what you are

asking.

LINDSAY lowers his voice, shielding DIDO.

SIR JOHN LINDSAYHer mother is dead! My wishes may

not be orthodox but they ARE

necessary!

LORD MANSFIELDHow do we raise her...?

SIR JOHN LINDSAYI beg you, uncle...love her - as

I would, were I here.

(sadly)

And ensure that she is in receipt

of all that is due to her as a

child of mine.

LADY MARY gasps, under...

LADY MANSFIELDThat is simply impossible.

SIR JOHN LINDSAY

What is right can never be

impossible.
