Massingbird dies in Australia, before knowing that he had come into it, and his widow Sibylla comes back to England, expecting to live with Mrs. Stephen Verner at Venter's Pride. However, she finds her old love, Lionel Verner, in possession, as next devisee after John and Frederick's death. He is, too, in love with a beautiful simple-natured ward of his mother's, Lucy Tempest; but in a moment of passion—alone with Sibylla, touched by the tale of her troubles, her passionate appeal to him for protection, and the memory of his early love, — he makes her an offer, which she at once accepts.
