Synopsis

Vi Marchmont, who has 13 suitors and is becoming interested in No. 14, is ordered by her father and Aunt Letitia to call a halt. With the aid of the family doctor, Vi convinces the family that she has a heart ailment and is sent to the country to recuperate. There she takes an interest in Richard Hardy, the gardener on her father's estate. Hardy is discharged by Vi's aunt when she discovers Vi's infatuation with him, and Van Ness, a wealthy young suitor, tries to convince Vi that Hardy is married; Vi, however, learns housekeeping, confident that Hardy will return. Hardy obtains a landscaping job, but in his unhappiness he confides in his mother, who visits Vi. In spite of Hardy's objections, Vi spends the night at his house, while he sleeps in her roadster. The following morning Vi informs him that she will not be happy until they are married, and they agree to elope.
