This subject centers about the misunderstanding between a man and his wife, due to his having seen a stranger enter his home under cover of night through a rear gateway, in company with his wife, who had met him there. Following into the house the husband found the stranger reading from some letters, which he thought to be love letters, and he was just about to shoot them both when his wife saw the revolver pointed at her heart and screamed. An explanation followed which convinced the husband that his wife had not only been true to him, but had at that moment been talking to a man from whom she had borrowed money to aid her husband in his recent illness. She had borrowed the money secretly, and had been unable to repay it promptly, and so the stranger had come to learn when he might expect payment.
