The Story

Jack Wynyard has been something of a black sheep; but now he has fallen in love with an American heiress, and looks forward to their marriage and to his new life.

Jack's father is a vicar who believes in the golden rule - and thus feels duty bound to be unpleasant!  But in this amusing little story the tables may be turned yet again.
