For your obstinacy. I have your word, and Mary has mine; I am a man, and will be no scoundrel.

FORESTER.

And because you will not be a scoundrel, I am to be one? Shall people say: “Ulrich caused a quarrel between father and son?” Sir, my girl is too good to have it said of her that she stole into your family. Mr.
