After a time, they quarrel and Caldigate returns to England. On his return, Caldigate meets and marries a previous acquaintance, Hester Bolton, and they have a son. He sets himself up as his father’s heir and life seems perfect. However, Euphemia suddenly reappears and claims they were married in Australia, making Caldigate a bigamist and his son illegitimate. Caldigate is tried, found guilty and sent to prison, still protesting his innocence. His wife stands by him. However, his innocence is proved when a postmark on a letter vital to the prosecution case is found to be forged and when Dick Shand returns from overseas to speak on his behalf. All ends happily, as Caldigate is reconciled with his wife’s family. (Summary by Simon Evers)
