Free to Love

1
A house of silence
 sends forth into
 the world a soul
with a grievance.

2
"I have no time for
 psalm-singing - I've
 something else to
     settle."

3
"She wouldn't give 
  her name, sir."

4
"Marie Anthony!"

5
"Yes, the orphan you
 sentenced to the 
 reformatory two years
       ago."

6
"I was innocent, and
 you should have 
    known it!"

7
"- - and now, you're 
   going to pay!"

8
"Tell 'Chick' it's O.K. -
   I saw the Judge."

9
"I've nothing to say
 except that I have
 just found out you
 were innocent - - I
    wronged you."

10
"I can't kill!"

11
"To make atonement,
 I'll take you into my
 home -- provide for
 your future as my
 ward - will you come?"

12
A new time - a new
 place - a new girl -

13
"You should practise
 casting every day,
       Daddy."

14
"Good morning! I
 suppose now I might
 be termed 'the poor
      fish'."

15
Presented to the
 society against
 which she had
sworn vengeance.

16
"-- wonderful girl --
 daughter of an old
      friend."

17
"- and my Settlement
 House becomes a
 reality next Sunday."

18
"It will be a place for
 ex-convicts to come to."

19
"You're a good actress -
 been watching you all
      evening."

20
"Don't high-hat me -
 I heard you the day
 you tried to croak the
       old man."

21
"I've a right to live and
 a right to love - even
 if you shout my past
 from the housetops."

22
"What are you after -
 the psalm-singer or
    the jewels?"

23
"I'd like to help you in
 your work among the
    ex-convicts."

24
"I introduced you here,
 but don't interfere
    with my son."

25
Where there is a future,
 there is no past - - the
    Settlement House.

26
"Did y'ever see this?"

27
"Don't that make you
   feel rumantic?"

28
Scarcely half a block
 away, an incubator
 of crime - - "The
 Crow's Nest".

29
"Did y'ever see this?"

30
"Where are the pearls?"

31
"Holding out, eh - -
 playing Santa Claus,
      are you?"

32
"Did y'ever see this?"

33
Crawford's mania for
 jewels led him into
 strange company.

34
"Tony, why don't you
 give up your bad
 companions and come
      to us?"

35
"I promise - - some
     day - -"

36
Whitewashing his
    soul - -

37
"Dad, you're certainly
 kind to these poor
   unfortunates."

38
"You seem to know
 me, young man."

39
"I'm crazy - - thinkin'
 the preacher's father
 the guy I saw in the
       'Nest'."

40
"Mix the 'soup' for that
   job this evening."

41
"- - and the 'fence' is
 coming for the stuff 
 at ten o'clock tonight - 
     and pay off."

42
The unpardonable sin
 of the underworld -
     squealing.

43
"The job's just been
 pulled. Raid the 'Nest'
 tonight at ten o'clock
 and you'll get the
    whole works."

44
"Don't forget your
 promise to protect me."

45
"We always keep our 
     promises."

46
Time is eternal - but
 one little minute can
 shape a destiny.

47
"I came down to take
 you home - - it's the
 right time, isn't it?"

48
"I'm sorry, Mr. Garner,
 but I'm waiting for -
    someone else."

49
"I don't think he'll come
 since he's learned the 
   truth about Marie 
        Anthony."
 
50
"I told him - because I
 love you - I'm crazy
 about you - I want 
  you to be my pal."

51
"I don't believe a word 
 you say. Please leave
         me!"

52
"Can't we be friends 
     at least?"

53
"Marie asked me to tell
 you that she would 
  go home with me
      tonight."

54
The zero hour - -

55
The father of the
  young preacher!
  And he - Tony -
had set the trap that
would disgrace him and
 "The Slum Angel"

56
"I squealed to the
 police -- and I've just
 found out it's the
 preacher's old man
 who buys the stuff."

57
"Tony, we must get
 him out at once - the
 'preacher' must never
       know - -"

58
"Did y'ever see this?"

59
"You've got to find a
 way out - the police
      are here!"

60
"The place is surrounded -
 there's only one escape -
      the cellar!"

61
"So you were always
  a fly cop, eh?"

62
"Sure - - get this!"

63
"Well - well - the little
 'Slum Angel'! What
  do you know about
        this?"

64
"Ask her. She can
    tell you."

65
"If she hadn't gone
 home with Garner
 that night, I couldn't
 believe her guilty."

66
"But she needs me,
 and I'm going to her."

67
Sacrifice - to save the
  name and honor of 
  the man she loved.

68
"I've learned to love
 you enough to keep
 faith in you - please
  tell me the truth."

69
"I have nothing to say -
 I've deceived you, and
 I'm ready to take my
     punishment."

70
"She told me she
   was guilty."

71
"She says she does
 not wish to see 
       you."

72
"Dear God, keep
  Tony silent."

73
A fugitive
   conscience - -

74
The dreaded Third
  Degree - -

75
"What we want to
 know is who got out
 of that den before 
  Garner was shot?"

76
When detectives remove
 their disguises - -
 friendship ends.

77
"You did it - you dirty
 rat - you did it! - -
 Why don't you go
  and tell 'em?"

78
 Diamonds ... rubies ...
    pearls - - vampires
    that had sucked the
blood from his brain -

79
"Who wore that hat?"

80
"I won't talk - - if you
       kill me!"

81
"I killed Garner - - I
 killed him - - he made
  a crook out o' me!"

82
"Don't say any more,
  Tony - - please!"

83
"I was the only one 
 that had anything to 
 do with it - - no one
        else."

84
Free to live - -
 free to love.

85
"The inspector kep' his
 promise - he called it
    self-defense."

86
"- - and I've come to
 keep mine - - I'm
  goin' straight."

87
"- and I've got a little
   surprise for yer -"

88
"I never would have been
 foolish enough to believe
 you guilty if you hadn't
 gone home with Garner
     that night."

89
"I never went home
   with Garner."

90
"Forgive me - - I told
 you at the start I was
    a poor fish!"
