AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Syliva and Henry Baring are expected to attend an evening party together. When Henry refuses to go at the last minute, Sylvia must yet again attend a social event alone. Feeling upset, she accuses her husband of loving his work and the law more than he loves her. Her complaint is interrupted by the appearance of a local spinster, Sarah Seedon. She claims to have pressing information about a case Henry is currently working on, but her evidence is laughable. She says that she has taken an astral journey, and witnessed a hit-and-run, insisting that the man on trial is not guilty. Henry at first dismisses her, but further revelations convince him that there might be something to her story. Sylvia, meanwhile, lingers in the background, still pondering the question of just how much her husband cares for her.
