Ill feeling resulting from the Lopez Affair and the lack of a legislative agenda result in the fall of the Liberal government and Plantagenet's retirement from public life. Silverbridge becomes involved with a Major Tifto in ownership of a race horse named "The Prime Minister" after his father, who warns him about the pitfalls of gambling on horses. Lady Mabel Grex tries to renew her past romance with Frank Tregear, but he has not forgotten that she turned down his proposal, and he evidently does not wish to renew the relationship. She now also turns down Silverbridge's proposal, telling him that she considers him immature but agrees to hear an additional renewed proposal in the future. Tregear makes his love for Mary known, and she reciprocates his feelings. Silver tells his disappointed father that he will stand for Parliament as a Tory, breaking the family's Liberal tradition and later meets Isabel Boncassen, a strikingly attractive American girl traveling with her parents. ...
