A wife is trying to hide the fact that her husband lies dead upstairs in his bed. Multiple people stop by wanting to see him and she sends them away with excuses of he's ill or asleep and will tell him they stopped by. Even the milkman asks after him. She's also trying to either mail a letter or intercept a letter and she's trying to leave the house to take care of it.
