Lovejoy finds it selling at auction, but doesn't notify the auctioneers. In a playful mood he bids on it against friendly Jim Leonard, and drops off after 15 thousand pounds. Although he easily could warn Leonhard when he takes a beautiful, young prospective buyer to a local watering hall and hotel, Lovejoy keeps silent, clearly relishing the situation.
