“She’s a fraud!”
Even a saintly man might have been pressed to contain himself, if a man he disliked burst into his study without so much as a by your leave. Mr. Beaumaris was not a saintly man, and made no attempt to call to heel Ulysses when the dog attacked Mr. Epworth’s trousers.
“I did not realize we had an appointment,” Mr. Beaumaris said. He gave Mr. Epworth a sardonic look, but Mr. Epworth was too overwrought to see it.
“By God, that scheming little baggage! She is a veritable fraud, Beaumaris! She isn’t a heiress! She’s got no more than a thousand pound portion! I could wring her neck!”
The famous heiress, Arabella, several years into her happy marriage, shares some lessons on property and propriety.
