Storyline

Desperate for money, Lopez tries to extort money from Abel Walton by threatening to move to Guatamala with a pregnant Emily. Seeing a way to be rid of his sleazy son-in-law at last, Walton offers to pay all of the bills if Lopez will agree to leave England without Emily and never to approach any family member again. Besides the 1700 pounds owed to tradesmen, he needs 5000 pounds for his directorship in a Guatamalan arms firm. In addition, the larcenous Lopez conspires with Parker to claim he owes 6000, not 2000, on his bad investment in the guano. When the story he sold to Slide becomes public in the newspaper, Finn comes to Plantagenet's aid in Parliament. He denounces Lopez's perfidy in soliciting payment from the Duke even though he was fully reimbursed by his father-in-law for his expenses from the Silverbridge by-election. The public outcry costs him a humiliating expulsion from his club, his position in South America, and withdrawal of financial help from Walton. Written by duke1029@aol.com
