However, every thing taken together, here, in Lincolnshire, are more good things than man could have had the conscience to ask of God.'

Narrator. Noel Iliff
Produced by David H. Godfrey
Lopez's desperate bid to stave off ruin has failed. Mr. Wharton will not give him another penny to save the tottering edifice of his City speculations from collapsing. He will give Lopez nothing but the five thousand pounds he requires to secure the position of manager of that mine in Guatemala-and only that on condition that he will go there without Emily.
But Lopez has waited too long. The mining company have heard things detrimental to his character and no longer wish to employ him. He realises that the game is up.
