Dr. Dale celebrated his fiftieth birthday and Gwen and Bob gave a dinner party for him. The doctor was called out to a patient, but later managed to get to the party. Alec tried to borrow some money from him. Bob was interviewed by a selection board for a radio officer course. Grandfather Dale went back to Scotland and took Miss Marchbanks with him as his new housekeeper. Mrs. Dale had no opportunity to ask Mrs. Freeman about her plan to be housekeeper at the nursing home. Gwen agreed to make up her quarrel with Jenny to please Bob.

Shortly after, Freighter No. 2, coming in to land with a load of supplies ferried down from the remainder of the Fleet still coasting in free orbit 1,000 miles above the Martian surface, crashes some five miles north of the little exploration party.
