SCENE II. Manchin’s marina.
He jests at scars that never felt a wound.
JOE MANCHIN appears above at a window
But, soft! what light through yonder window breaks?

Ne’er eye unlidded or ear cock’d to our cries.
His vest is lined with green;
We are fools to let him wear it; tear it from him; and cast him out.
Ah, there’s that fellow the Dem establishment is always telling us is indispensable to the party’s success.
