- Puck stands on a stage speaking to wealthy philanthropists. From left: an empty seat "reserved for Russell Sage," Mrs. Stanford, Miss [Helen Miller?] Gould, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Vanderbilt, [and] Morgan." Puck is displaying a "Plan for model tenement" and pointing to a view of current tenement housing conditions projected on a screen on the stage. In the "Christmas sermon," Puck is entreating that when these generous millionaires are performing their philanthropy, they not only endow schools and libraries, which benefit "those that already have much," but also "give something to those who have less than nothing."
