I bought you boys for protection. I'm being hassled by some raker--I forget the name. "E" something. Didn't show his face, but he said he wants something I bought called a "voice box."
The bastard said he'd come back tomorrow to pay me, but I know a cheat when I see one. He wants to rob me blind--tonight!
Stay alert and stick anyone snooping around. The voice box is in my safe for extra security. Keep out of my wares and I'll pay you in the morn.
