We go.

Eh, just a moment Captain.

I've been talking to some

gentlemen about the deal

you proposed two years ago.

- M-hm.

They're extremely interested.

The contract with the Russian. - Yes.

It was your idea to take over the

charter of the Alaskan fur company.

I've changed my mind.

- You don't want to buy

the Alaskan contract?

- I've decided to buy Alaska.

Buy Alaska? Why, that

would take millions.

Ten millions, to be exact.

Way with the idea, Mr. Clegett.

- I'll get you my droosh.

Droosh, driver, driver, droosh! Now,

Captain, if there's anything we can do

to make your stay in San Francisco

pleasant, we're at your command.

The Occidental.

What about us?

- You use that walking chains at

the tail of the sheddy. Keeping your

feet in the paths of righteousness.

And your eyes away

from the swinging doors.

He can't be serious

about buying Alaska.

Of course he's serious, the man is

fabulous, mad, he's impossible.

But if he's decided to

buy Alaska, he'll buy it.

Oh, the Boston Man is back!

His Deacon is with him.

- Mamie, Jonathan Clark is here.

He's got Ogeechuk with him.

- Aha, passing us up to the Occidental.

I'll lay you two to one they

don't get in the joint.

Did somebody ring?

I'd like some rooms for

myself and my crew.

I'm sorry, the hotel is

full to capacity.

I'll bed myself on the

second floor, near the front.

We'll need about, uhm, ten suites.

Will ten suites be enough?

May I suggest you try some hotel a

little closer to the waterfront?

And we also want the

main ballroom for tonight.

Set up some extra bars and dinner

for about a hundred people.

For it is told that Salomon in his

wisdom decreed the toiler

should revel and make merry.

You think he has ever revelled?

Or made merry?

That's debateable.

- It's not only debateable,
