Mrs. Dale, the doctor's wife, records the daily happenings in the life of her family
Script by Joan Carr-Jones
Jenny refused Grandfather Dale's offer that she should live at Kings Acre While she was with the repertory company in Meliburgh. Mrs. Dale and Mrs. Freeman went to the Sale At Parkwood Lodge.
Marleen and Mrs. Skeats quarrelled and when Marleen refused to stay at her mother-in-law's house, Mrs. Morgan offered her and Stan a room until they decided what to do. Stan's loyalty was completely divided between his mother and his wife; and it was Mr. Morgan's advice that brought them all together again. Sally's successful effort at making herself a hat gave Mrs. Freeman the idea that they might be a commercial proposition for 'Sarah.' Mrs. Mountford announced that she and Madame de Grey were thinking of buying Parkwood Lodge together and opening it as an hotel.
