Storyline

Uncle Joe has obviously been receiving and in return sending a series love letters, about which he is evasive. Kate eventually learns that the reason he is being so evasive is that the letter writer is Mary Alice Perkins, a woman who stood Uncle Joe up at the altar several years ago and ran off with his best man, George Perkins who apparently has recently passed away. Uncle Joe admits he never loved anyone but her, and that he has now forgiven her, she in turn who is coming to the Shady Rest to marry Uncle Joe. And if Uncle Joe has forgiven her, Kate figures she may as well and go all the way on this ride with Uncle Joe. Kate may have a quiet change of heart upon the arrival of Mary Alice and her highfalutin ways. Words and actions may also mean different things to Mary Alice. Written by Huggo
