Storyline

Esmee's continued patronage of Monica arouses the jealousy of other maids and tempers are frayed because a bout of illness has laid several staff low, including the austere house-keeper Mrs. Harvey. Sarah steps into the breach as her replacement and tells Marcus he should respect the staff as human beings. However he teases her and accuses her of double standards for regarding Monica as acting above her station. Mr. Collins, whose son Paul was shot for cowardice in the war,is duped out of his savings by two young swindlers claiming to be collecting for a fund to enable another family whose son was shot for cowardice to legally challenge the decision. He goes to pieces and tries to burn his son's belongings. Stephen and Kate, a maid who knew Paul, calm him down and afterwards Stephen explains to Kate that some of the so-called cowards were under real duress and that she should not judge them. He and Marcus track down the thieves and get Mr. Collins' money back. Written by don @ minifie-1
