    Redmond's Delicate Question

    We have here the solid British husband, the flighty (but high-minded) American bride, the suitor unexpectedly returned from a far country -- why, it might almost be "The Noble Bachelor" all over again. Is some lesson implied here about the importance of sticking with one's own tribe and class?
