A Comedy in One Act by Edwin Lewis.
Played by the Station Radio Players.

Scene: The dining-room of the Grouse and Crown Inn, On the North Road, in the 18th century.
Tony Mortlake, an eighteenth-century gallant, has dined well in the Inn of the Grouse and Crown. He is waiting impatiently for the coming of the Lady Lucy, who is due to arrive with her unsuspecting guardian. Tony proposes to elope with her, but the guardian, Sir Charles Catchpole, has designs upon her fortune and is taking her to Lady Twizzle's to see if a month under her care will cure her of her infatuation for Tony. Tony rings for the land-lord to give him instructions.
