Jack, Haney and Hayes.     Sat awhile in the
work room with Mr and Mrs Edwards.     Parton
came in to visit his mother who was staying

he �believes Hartley was trying to gain her love from 
him and blames him, when it is really the
contrary.   Rosa says she shall love Charley as
well as anybody� (suggestive phrase!) �now.�
Hartley appears a cheap, mean dog, mercenary
