Romance among the ladies of Toorak. An old French fortune-teller in Melbourne predicts a widow's romance with a certain gentleman - but the proddings of a cruel friend and a bribe on the gentleman's part persuade his true love to visit the seer and to learn of his affection. A happy marriage follows and his trickery is finally revealed. (PB)
