: You know, the fact is, a change from these surroundings would do you a world of good. Italy's the place for you! Elizabeth Barrett
: Italy? Oh, no Doctor. This is my Italy. Dr. Chambers
: Rubbish. That's just it. You don't want to go anywhere. You don't want to see anybody. Confound it, my dear, isn't there something you want to do? Elizabeth Barrett
: Yes. And I'm doing it. I'm writing poetry. And there are those you think it isn't such bad poetry. Mr. Robert Browning has sent me several letters of approval. Dr. Chambers
: Browning? Never heard of him.
: Oh Doctor, that reminds me, sit down a minute. You remember PaPa suggesting to you that a certain kind of beer called Porter might do me good? Dr. Chambers
: Yes! And an excellent suggestion, too! Elizabeth Barrett
: Oh, forgive me, but it was nothing of the kind. I've had to drink it twice a day and in consequence my life has become one long misery. Dr. Chambers
: Bless my soul! Elizabeth Barrett
: I'm not exaggerating! One long misery. Dr. Chambers
: You poor little lady. Elizabeth Barrett
: There's no use my opinion to PaPa, but, if, you dear, Doctor Chambers, would suggest to him that something else might be equally beneficial? Why... Dr. Chambers
: What would you say to a couple of glasses of hot milk? Elizabeth Barrett
: Oh, I hate milk. But, I'll drink it all day long if you'll only rescue me from Porter.
