A Play in One Act by Yate Tregarron.
Played by the Station Radio Players
Scene: Sir Horace Belgrove's Study

Although Sir Horace Belgrove had an aitch in his Christian name, he has always been uncertain of his aspirates, and Mr. Mingleby, an unsuccessful Oxford man, helped him to make famous speeches in the House of Commons by teaching him word by word. Sir Horace is as ambitious for his daughter, Sybil, as for himself, and he intends to marry her to nothing less than a Coronet, but Tony Lessing complicates matters by loving and by being beloved by Sybil. The unsuccessful Mr. Mingleby also loves her, but knowing that his suit is hopeless, he resolves to make his employer behave handsomely.
