ON an eighteenth-century January morning tho courtyard of the Coverdale Anns becomes a storm centre. Lionel Bland is there, determined to put a stop to a parentally arranged marriage between his sweetheart, Alice Cover dale, and Captain Harry Romney. Lady Molly Martingale , accompanied by her maid, Hester, arrives on horseback, also bent upon squashing the same marriage because Harry happens to be her lover. Aided and abetted by his ex-servant, Mickey. she masquerades under Harry's name, in a suit of his clothes, and succeeds in making Sir Miles Coverdate believe that she is his future son-in-law. When Harry appears on the scene, he is regarded as an impostor, and is subsequently arrested, together with Lionel, for duelling.
These complications grow more involved in the drawing-room, Castle Coverdale. Alice, of course, has penetrated Molly's disguise, and amuses herself by pretending to bo . namourcd of her smooth-faced suitor.' Harry and Lionel, now at liberty, vowing vengeance upon the usurper of Harry's name and clothes, attack Molly, sword in hand. Alice averts bloodshed ; the timely arrival of Judge Romney establishes Harry's identity ; and Molly's resumption of feminine garb clears the air so effectually that the curtain falls upon the prospect of at least two happy marriages.
