Alpha Omega M.D. – Episode #265
…He still don’t deserve what he’s got, his damned wife inherited all that land from that Ferrell wack-o…
George Lewis has been approached by Doctor Campbell, with ambitious plans for a two-story structure to be built next to the doctor’s home on Virginia Street. It is hard for Lewis to deny anything that has to do with Maggie Campbell, considering that he is the father of her second daughter, Laura. But no one else knows this, especially his contemporaries in the Tallahassee business community.
“You mean our spineless Governor? We haven’t had a two-termer in Florida, yet. Holland won’t be the first, I’ll see to that.”
“What have you against Holland? Didn’t he help you buy some state land a while back?”
“He’ll regret makin’ friends with Negroes.” Wilson is adamant. “That quack doctor is one of ‘em.”
“I would give it up, if I were you, Charlie. He didn’t do anything to your sister. She was five bricks short of a chimney before she took sick.” George Lewis is doing his best to talk some sense into his friend.
“He still don’t deserve what he’s got. His damned wife inherited all that land from that Ferrell wack-o… nothing to do with him. He ain’t done shit.”
“If that were the case, wouldn’t James Ferrell feel the same way you do, maybe worse? It was his inheritance that Maggie Lou Campbell got. Instead, he is the doctor’s greatest ally.”
Please do not use facts to confuse a polluted mind. “Fine. I can hold him off for a while, but my rejecting his loan application is losing steam with each passing year. Right now I can say they don’t have enough cash for a down payment, but all they would have to do is sell some property to solve that.”
“You better have McLoud make sure they don’t get any smart ideas.”
