6th Legislator:
A friend? Oh, well, I voted "no,"
But surely you can comprehend
That I advise you as a friend.

(Suffragists alone.)

1st Suffragist:
The men in favour talk much less.

2nd Suffragist:
They haven't much to say but "yes";
The men opposed explain a lot
How they're opposed and yet they're not
It takes some time to make that clear.

1st Suffragist:
How very bad the air is here!

2nd Suffragist:
Do you refer to ventilation,
Or to the general situation?

(The reply is inaudible.)
