Lord Tolloller.
Though p’r’aps I may incur your blame,
The things are few
I would not do
In Friendship’s name!

Lord Mountararat.
And I may say I think the same;
Not even love
Should rank above
True Friendship’s name!

Then free me, pray; be mine the blame;
Forget your craze
And go your ways
In Friendship’s name!

Oh, many a man, in Friendship’s name,
Has yielded fortune, rank, and fame!
But no one yet, in the world so wide,
Has yielded up a promised bride!

Accept, O Friendship, all the same,

This sacrifice to thy dear name!
Accept this sacrifice to thy dear name!

Exeunt Lord Mountararat and Lord Tolloller, lovingly, in one direction, and Phyllis in another. Exit Sentry.

Willis (Leo Sheffield), Mountararat (Frederick Hobbs), Phyllis (Helen Gilliland) & Tolloller (Derek Oldham), 1919
From 1919 Souvenir
