The scene opens with Elizabeth thanking Corcoran for helping her husband and is sad that Winfred is dead. Later, Robert says that they have to get Corcoran back into the ring. Elizabeth shows Corcoran a painting and he is clearly embarrassed. Elizabeth says that Winfred wouldn’t allow her to hang it because it looked like her. Elizabeth asks why he didn’t kiss her hand. He says that he didn’t know that he was allowed to. She asks if he wants to kiss it and he says that he does. She leaves and Robert has Corcoran join them for drinks. Matthew meets with Reverend Garland and tells him that the children will be fine. Two men, Dermot and Jerry, shout from outside calling him a racial slur. Garland tells them that he wanted to rent a horse from them and they refused. He is told that they won’t rent to a colored man. They tell Garland that they burnt down the last orphanage and will do the same to this one. Matthew comes out with a shotgun and fires it into the air. He tells them not to harm the children...
