Shortly after her arrival home from boarding school, Dolly Hoffman, with her chum, Anita, introduces Anita to an old friend of hers, Peter Drake, who is at first unable to decide between the girls as to which he would choose as his wife. Through an accident, he finds he is really in love with Dolly. Anita overhears his proposal, and is filled with hatred and jealousy. After their marriage, Anita succeeds in arousing Peter's jealousy, and through apparently compromising circumstances, leading him to believe his wife guilty of an affair with Billy. Dolly is horrified, but is unable to appease his unreasoning jealousy with satisfactory explanations, and a barrier of suspicion and coldness arises between them. Anita is delighted. Anita drops Dolly a note, saying she is leaving on the 6:10 train. Peter also sends her a brief note, saying he is leaving on the same train, and tells her to communicate with his lawyer. Dolly is astounded and thinks she understands the meaning of the two notes....
