William James Craft
Marion Fuller returns home after studying art in New York City and finds that her Aunt Prudence and her fiancé, Jasper Hickson, are suspicious of the influence of city life on her. Weary of her fiancé's attitude, she tells her family that she has engaged in a "trial marriage" in New York with Thaddeus Cruikshank, a name she remembers as the author of a book she has read. Her father wires Cruikshank, demanding that he come to Fullervale, and thinking that an imposter is using his name, Thaddeus obeys the summons; finding Marion to his liking, he is not disturbed when Fuller insists upon an immediate marriage. Complications ensue as the family tries to keep them apart until after the ceremony. Marion wilfully declines to marry him, but Thaddeus "compromises" her to such an extent that she consents.
