Storyline

At the reading of her uncle's will, Honoria Spavin, a spinster lady, learns that his entire fortune is to be left to her on condition that she marry her cousin, Benvenuto Torrini, a young man who is not an Italian, but an American, living in America. If she refuses to marry Ben, all the fortune goes to him, but if he refuses to marry her, she is to get the money. Ben happens to be already engaged to Ella Cunningham, and when he receives a copy of the will, together with the pleasing news that Honoria, who has never seen him, is coming from England on the next steamer, he agitatedly shows it to Ella. She thinks up a plan, and after securing the assistance of their friends, Ben and Ella make up to resemble Italians of the laboring class.

He makes a scene right at the dock which would have disheartened most women, but she has a keen eye for that ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
