Mr. Hubert.
Walked around the block, so to speak?
Mr. Pierce.
And come down the elevator and walked from there down to the locker room where they did stay.
Mr. Hubert.

Mr. Pierce.
If it be of help. I am privileged to be of help. If I have, I'm glad.
Mr. Hubert.

Mr. Hubert.
Thank you very much, sir.
Mr. Pierce.
