At the Post Office/makeshift FBI office, Agent Van Alden is putting more pins in his map of Atlantic City when one of his underlings comes in with a letter, saying, "We've got another one." This would be another letter addressed to Angela Darmody. I guess it's not surprising to see that Van Alden's been the one intercepting these parcels. His perch at the post office gives him ample opportunity. He opens the letter to reveal a pretty hefty wad of cash. Rather than pocket it, Van Alden opens a drawer, revealing weeks upon weeks' worth of similar cash-filled envelopes Jimmy has sent. He adds this new one to the pile.
In NYC, Arnold Rothstein is meeting with his attorney, and much like the last time we saw them, they're discussing the 1919 World Series, and the scandal that's been drummed up around it. It seems the scandal hasn't gone away as they'd hoped, and now Rothstein is practicing answers he's prepared to give to investigators. The story he's going with is that gamblers -- including the boxer Abe Atell -- approached him to get in on fixing the Series and he turned them down. Furthermore -- he says while summoning his most righteously indignant tone -- he has too much respect for the game as a national institution to besmirch it in such a way. His only crime is in being the kind of man people come to with harebrained ideas. "Certainly suffering fools can't be illegal," he appeals. The lawyer is impressed. Says Arnold should be a lawyer. Rothstein pulls a line out of the hackiest "Bon Mots and Lawyer Jokes, 1879" pamphlet and says he prefers to make his living legally. Because he's a criminal, see!
