Unbeknownst to Richard Bellamy his son James has been secretly seeing Hazel Forrest in her free hours and has asked her to marry him. She doesn't accept him right away but does resign her position as Richard's secretary. When Richard hears of it, he lashes out at James questioning his judgment but the younger Bellamy stands his ground. Hazel turns him down but it's clear that she has a secret which she will not reveal to James. James assumes his father has interfered in his life and it is left to Hazel's kindly father, Arthur Forrest, to tell James of the perceived impediment preventing Hazel from marrying. As for Richard, he is clearly being pursued by his old family friend, Lady Prudence Fairfax, who thinks he should remarry. Written by
