The Letter

...a savings account
in the amount of $ 1 0,452.

Tell your friend to go to the devil.
But, Mr. Joyce....
The woman does not want
to sell the letter.

My friend took a long time
to persuade her.

Ten thousand dollars
is a lot of money, Ong...

...just to save some trouble.
Yes, sir.
It is a great deal of money.
I'll speak to Mr. Crosbie.
-He's waiting for you at the club, sir.

We have not much time, and the matter,
in my opinion, permits no delay.

Therefore, I took the liberty of asking
Mr. Crosbie to have lunch with you.

All right. Have the woman
come to my office.

I was about to mention, sir...
...she made two conditions.
She insists that the money
shall be brought to her.

I can take you to the house
whenever you are ready, sir.

And the other condition?
That Mrs. Crosbie bring it
to her, personally.

You must be mad.
You suppose Mrs. Crosbie can just
walk out whenever she feels like it?

My friend thinks that you could arrange
for her to stay at your house until the trial.

I'm sure the judge will permit it
if you are responsible for her, sir.

Ong Chi Seng.
Yes, sir?
What are you getting out of this?
Two thousand dollars...
...and the great satisfaction of being
of service to you and our client.
