Frank's sister Augusta is marrying a boorish older man for money, not love, and Arabella wants a similar match for Frank with eccentric heiress Miss Dunstable.
A new love interest arrives for Mary and Frank is urges to by his aunt and mother to propose to Miss Dunstable but she is astute enough to see that he loves Mary and turns him down.
