them, if they can behave themselves.

What did you say?

It's the cholera. What?

They're burning the bodies

in the houses of the dead.

Why didn't that boatman tell us this?

Come on, let's get clear.

Mr. Montague. That is I, Tuan.

The most white man of this place.

Best English make.

Best English make.

You see? How do you do?

Only I.

What I can do to assist my white

brothers and my lady brothers?

We want a ride down the coast to

Kintaling and catch a freighter there.

I am sorry to give Tuan astonishment,

but impossible to go down coast.

Swamp of mangrove tree all the way.

Must go through jungle.

What? What?

How long will it take?

Three, four days.

'Tis a matter of how excellently...

the lady brothers can walk.

Walk? Walk?

Yes, but with our machines, Corder...

these natives will make things so

cheaply, we won't be able to compete.

You cynics never see

the donut for the hole.

Well, still, that saves

a lot of indigestion.

And then after my third marriage...

My husband was a

government official here.

His name was Alfred, too.

It was really most

embarrassing at times...

if you know what I mean.

Calling one Alfred at moments...

and then realizing that it

wasn't Alfred, but Alfred.

I was engaged once in high

school, but nothing happened.

Well, one is really too young then.

Want a breather?

It's not the heat,

really, it's the humidity.

Mr. Corder?

What's the matter?

Mr. Corder, please pick that

orchid for me. Do you mind?

I suppose it's all right to pick it.

Thank you.

I've never had an orchid

before. They cost so much.

I hope I'm not being too much trouble.

Oh, nice.

Just like the botanical gardens

and the zoo at the same time.

Anything wrong?

No, no.

Just a little snake.

Here, you better put this on. This sun

knifes you whether you can see it or not.
