Fortunately, one of the gentlemen from the ship is a local banker and arranges for a line of credit and a place to live. Relieved, the Vincents begin the work for which they have come to Italy. All is proceeding apace until a solicitor arrives at their house and charges them with illegal trespass.

Now, Jane and Vincent owe money to a number of people in town and are forbidden from travel.
