0 - Eddie Sanger tells Lomax that he's leaving Cornwall for Redruth, Corpus Christi, and Truro to perform at the fairs. He tells Lomax that "I think the country's going to the dogs" and offers this when Lomax asks for his personal philosophy on life: "Get through it as easily as you possibly can, have as many good times as you can, because when you're dead you're dead a long time and why worry?"
