Jeeves does not approve of Bertie's new betrothed, bossy Lady Florence Craye - author of 'Strength Through Willpower', particularly when, during a weekend party at Totleigh Court, she orders Bertie to steal and destroy Sir Watkyn Bassett's memoirs,whose publication could cause large scale embarrassment. Wooster steals the manuscript and gives it to Jeeves, who, as always, knows best. Suffice to say, the engagement is soon over. Jeeves is more sympathetic to Gussie Fink-Nottle, when Stiffy Byng, by whom he is captivated, persuades him to retrieve her dog,who has bitten and been confiscated by P.C. Oates during rehearsals for the annual village variety show.
