  Maj. T.  Whom do you seek, Madam?  2
  Lady.  The worthy gentleman with whom I have the honour of speaking. You do not know me again. I am the widow of your late captain.  3
  Maj. T.  Good heavens, Madam, how you are changed!  4
  Lady.  I have just risen from a sick bed, to which grief on the loss of my husband brought me. I am troubling you at a very early hour, Major von Tellheim, but I am going into the country, where a kind, but also unfortunate friend, has for the present offered me an asylum.  5
  Maj. T.  (to JUST). Leave us.  6
