daring of all blockade-runners, whose fleet schooners, slipping past he
Yankee guns, have brought to us here the very woolens and laces we wear
tonight. I refer, ladies and gentlemen, to that will-o'-the-wisp of the
bounding main-none other than our friend from Charleston-Captain Rhett
Ya..! Ho..! Yahoo..!
Captain Butler, such a pleasure to see you again. I met you last at my husband's
That's kind of you to remember, Mrs. Wilkes.
Did you meet Captain Butler at Twelve Oaks, Scarlett?
Yes, I-I think so.
Only for a moment,Mrs. Hamilton. It was in the library. You-er had broken something.
Yes, Captain Butler, I remember you.
Ladies, the Confederacy asks for your jewelry on behalf of our noble Cause.
We aren't wearing any. We're in mourning.
Wait! On behalf of Mrs. Wilkes and Mrs. Hamilton.
Thank you, Captain Butler.
Just a moment, please.
But it's your wedding ring, ma'am.
It may help my husband more-off my finger.
That was a very beautiful thing to do, Mrs. Wilkes.
Here. You can have mine, too-for the Cause.
And you, Mrs. Hamilton. I know just how much that means to you.
Yes, Dr. Meade?
I need your approval, as a member of the Committee, for something we want
to do that's rather shocking. Will you excuse us, please?
