Storyline

Captain Bunce comes ashore after a cruise, meets some old friends and as a consequence, finds himself next morning in a strange town, with very little cash. He goes to a lodging house kept by a widow, one Mrs. Mulligan. He takes a room, but when asked for his rent in advance, he cannot pay it. Mrs. "M," however, is anxious to marry again and thinks she sees in Bunce an easy victim, so she takes him as a lodger, and when some weeks later he is still bankrupt, proposes that she will cancel the debt if he will marry her. Bunce consents, but as the wedding day draws near, he repents and tries to escape. She brings him back and takes away his shoes and his hat so he cannot escape. He gets the servant to send a letter to Barnacle, telling of his plight. Barnacle arrives on the scene, pretends to sympathize with Mrs. M. and to be horrified at Bunce's lack of taste and at last gains admittance to his friend. There he sternly upbraids Bunce for his conduct, but left alone with him for a minute...
