Abstract:

Bill Fowler is thrown in jail for gambling at his bachelor party on the eve of his wedding to widow Isabel Dare. Bill's friend Christopher Cutting, the fixer, manages Bill's escape by using chloroform to knock out the constable, who reappears immediately after Bill's wedding and demands Bill's rearrest. Bill steals the identity of a diplomat named William Fowler, and tells Isabel that he has to go to Mexico, and that the constable is a special envoy sent to escort him. 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. William Fowler appears, and duels with Bill, who escapes trouble when the fixer knocks out the diplomat with a brick. The lack of a scar on the diplomat's forehead proves to Isabel that he is not her first husband.
