Howard is trying to write a romantic novel but Mary and Trevor are unimpressed. Learning that Laura from next door is a very wealthy widow Howard proposes to her and is turned down. He then passes himself off as Quincey Brown,the famous crime novelist but is rumbled when the picture on the dust jacket of Quincey's book shows that she was a woman who died a decade earlier. And Howard's claim to have written a poem by Byron also exposes him as a fraud. Written by
