At a charity ball where he meets Lady Caroline's betrothed, guards captain Mostyn, Jack hits it off with Isobel, who confirms that Dixon is quite mad. Billy is angry to see Jack flirting with her but it is Jack's way of forcing Billy to declare his feelings for her. Isobel's mother supports Billy as he persuades Murchison to renew business with Bill, who now owns five shops. Jack and High Life catch Dixon breaking into the duke's house to destroy a picture of the duke's wife. It is his revenge because the duke's late son seduced Dixon's daughter and Manners, feeling responsible for Dixon, agrees to look out for him and his family if no charges are pressed. Having lent Tom money for his own market garden Jack meets Matt for a last drink before setting sail for America.

Did You Know?
Before setting sail for America Jack takes a farewell look around the area he knows so well. He starts by walking up a steep street bank then is seen looking at the river and docks on the Tyne, next he's quite a distance away walking over the Newcastle Swing Bridge then he's looking at an old pit head and finally he's on the beach at Blackhall, some 25 miles away as the crow flys, from Newcastle. All this on foot in less than a minute. See more
