A lady who has rather expensive tastes and is always fretting because her husband does not make her a larger allowance, is out visiting when she sees a pocketbook full of banknotes lying about. She takes the notes, and her hostess, when she discovers the loss, suspects her own son, who secretly admires the thief. For her sake he accepts the blame, but the husband accidentally finds the money in his wife's possession. She makes confession, but her hostess is so glad her son is innocent, that she forgives.
