John Bunnybunch is desperately in love with Lilly Walkerin. He has proposed to her and while she hesitates, John feels that all hope is not lost. Miss Bulfinch, a susceptible old maid, has been casting longing glances at John and she is to him a perfect nightmare. While meditating, he falls asleep and dreams that he is pursued by the spinster, who takes every possible means of appearing before him and pressing her leap year proposals wherever he goes, bobbing out of a trunk, gaining access to his room, disguised as a man, hiding under the bed, and pursuing him in most absurd and irrepressible fashion. Lastly, he dreams that he is just about to kiss Lilly, when his persistent pursuer butts her caricature of a face between theirs. At this point he wakes up. His joy is unconfined when he finds it is only a dream.
