Storyline

Fleur's letters to her friends results in her being sued for libel by Marjorie Ferrar. Soames takes charge of the defense and he wants to settle the case out of court, without Fleur having to apologize. He lays the groundwork for a possible defense while also offering a compromise on the issue of the apology. The Tories win the general election and Michael Mont delivers his maiden speech in the House of Commons. He is verbally attacked by Sir Alexander MacGown, who happens to be one of Marjorie's lovers and is desperate to marry her. Michael hold his own and delivers a fine speech. MacGown is something of a brute and attacks Michael in the men's' room at the first opportunity. Francis Wilmot is quite taken with Marjorie Ferrar and asks her to marry him. He's something of an innocent in the clutches of a lioness. When he falls gravely ill, it's Fleur who goes to his bedside. Written by garykmcd
