Maitland White is not content, because his ambition is to be a painter. His heart is set upon his boy's becoming an architect, but Roderick falls in love with Veronica, and announces his intention of marrying her, and seeking a job. The father is grieved, and his wife induces him to retire and forget his troubles in the pursuit of art. He does so and produces a picture. But investments fail, and he is threatened with ruin. Veronica breaks her engagement with Roderick in order that he may study just when there is no money to pay for it. At this juncture Mrs. White and a friend arrange a ball, at which the picture shall be sold at auction. She invites connoisseurs and announces that $4,000 has been bid. Maitland is delighted, until he discovers that the purchaser is his old "boss," who wants the picture for advertising, but his pride is overcome by a realization of his own limitations, and he sacrifices to parental duty. An especially attractive play for high schools, colleges, and Community Theatre.
