Storyline

Carter Weston, a novelist, notices a pretty young girl on the train reading his latest book, "A Modem Psyche." He is greatly struck by her beauty and sweetness, but does not speak with her as he has to get off at the next station. The girl is Jane Harmon, the daughter of John Harmon, the book and curio collector. She is returning from college and is going to help her father in cataloging his somewhat extensive library. The next door neighbors of the Harmons are Mrs. Bradley and her daughter Nell, a college friend of June. Just after the girl's return from college, Mrs. Bradley sends out invitations for a fancy dress ball, to which she invites June. Mr. Harmon refuses permission to his daughter, but she makes up her mind to do just as she pleases and sets about designing a suitable costume. Looking over her new novel she sees a picture of Psyche and determines to go in that character. Among the other guests invited to the house is Carter Weston, who happens to be a cousin of Nell ...
