Mr. Darby is a thoroughly agreeable gentleman of modest circumstances and romantic leanings who suddenly inherits a fortune of millions. Here at last he has a chance to indulge his tastes and fancies: He can smoke the most expensive cigars, drink champagne, and become a patron of the arts.
But, best of all, he is able, after all these years, to fulfill his dream of travel in the remote and fascinating parts of the world, beneath the tropic suns, through the jungle and beside the azure seas. Life has suddenly become very important and beautiful and exciting to Mr. Darby.
