r. Princey's batty daughter, Millicent, has just killed the schoolmaster, with whom she was in love, when she found out he had gotten engaged to another woman. A murderess in the family? That won't do. Mr. Princey has a shallow dimwit for a son and a wife who, whatever her other qualities, is no good when it comes to covering up a murder. Mr. Princey takes it upon himself to keep Millicent out of prison or the madhouse. Good luck is on his side when Captain Smollet stops by for a visit. Captain Smollet, it seems, has just as much a motive for murder as Millicent.
