Fleur goes to Harold Blade's studio for her portrait sitting but she sees Jon and Anne there as she too is having her portrait done. When she learns that Jon will also have his portrait painted, she arranges for them to both be there on the same day. Since her experience with running the strike canteen, Fleur has been looking for something substantive to do. She comes across the idea of opening a rest home for working girls to give them a rest and fresh air. Val's racehorse meanwhile is ill and Stainford says he knows why. Of course he wants payment so Val arranges asks his Uncle Soames to be there when he meets him. The committee Michael has assembled to raise funds for the slum renovation meets for the first time and Soames is co-opted to join the group.
