William Whittlestaff, an aging bachelor, becomes a guardian to the much younger Mary Lawrie, the orphaned and penniless daughter of an old friend. Having lost the woman he loved to a richer rival many years ago, he now finds himself falling in love with Mary with intentions to marry her despite knowing that her love belongs to another man, John Gordon. John left three years previously in search of his fortune in order to make himself worthy of Mary. Not knowing if she will ever see him again, Mary accepts Whittlestaff's proposal only for her true love to return having made his fortune in the Kimberley diamond fields of South Africa. Though he knows Mary's true feelings, Whittlestaff is unwilling to be rejected once again and will not let Mary go back on her promise. John does not want to give up hope either. Who will win Mary's hand in marriage?
