Act 1, Scene 3 Summary

Scene 3 opens in the study where there is first mention of the wardrobe at the back of the room. Lewis is seated at his desk writing letters, when Warnie enters with a breakfast tray. Warnie reading the newspaper and Lewis sorting through the mail, the two men carry on the simultaneous yet independent dialogue of familiarity. Lewis mentions a Mrs. Gresham, whose letter he has been reading. Joy Gresham is an American woman who obviously takes great interest in Lewis' craft. She is coming to England on a trip with her son and she expresses her desire to get together with both gentlemen while she is in town. The brothers proceed to joke about her sanity and her appearance with sibling zest. However, at Lewis' encouragement, Warnie agrees to join him in meeting her.
