Billy. Billy ! Come here.
See how you like this one. "dear meg,
"we're on our way to Dresden Where we'll have to do Some work for the Germans.
"it won't be war work Because the Geneva convention Prohibits that,
"and besides, there isn't Any war production in Dresden.
"Dresden is the town where Our little dancing figure Came from.
Remember the one that Johnny Knocked off the table And broke ?"
"Dresden?s never Been bombed because It isn't a military target,
"so we'll be safe there.
"please write to Johnny And give him all my love,
"and tell him I know we'll all Be back together again soon.
Tell him how proud I am of him."
Where is he ? Your boy's in the car, Mr. Pilgrim.
He's the only one We actually caught.
They knocked over 14 gravestones, All told.
Why he'd do such a thing ?
Has he ever said anything About Catholics ?
-I mean, has he Anything against them ?
we've got catholic friends.
What will the McNally?s think ? What are we going to say To the McNally?s ?
Mr. Pilgrim, If I could see you up here.
My, god ! Why did he do it ?
I don't want To take the boy Down to the station.
It might be Embarrassing to you.
maybe we could handle it In some other way. -thank you, officer.
If you can get the damages From the church, I'd pay for that.
I'll see what I can do.
And I?d like to show My appreciation by giving you This for the policeman's fund.
You don't have to do that, Mr. Pilgrim, but it's Very generous of you.
I'll call you after We've been able to determine The extent of the damages.
