Meanwhile, Isabel is worried that her first husband who resembles Fowler and was supposedly drowned, may still be alive. Cutting gains Bill's release by bribing the constable, but the friends have to go to Mexico to mail a letter to Isabel in order to keep their stories straight. They then return home to Rye, N.Y., where Bill is triumphantly greeted as the returning diplomat.
