Storyline

Silverbridge is elected to Parliament as a Conservative and his father's disappointment is obvious. Lady Mabel Grex calls on him but Silverbridge is no longer as keen as he once was and is now smitten with the lovely American, Isabel Boncassen. Mabel is determined however to get him as her husband. Silverbridge also has to contend with his partner Major Tifto, co-owner of their horse the Prime Minister, and as a result makes an outrageously large bet at the upcoming races. Lady Mary meanwhile confides in her mother about her relationship with Frank Tregear and Glencora, while giving her blessing, agrees that Plantagenet may be a problem. She tries to get him to find Tregear a seat in Parliament but he isn't amenable to the suggestion. Glencora falls ill and takes to her bed with Marie Finn trying to nurse her back to good health Written by garykmcd
