Kendall is in close proximity to his beautiful and honest daughter, Louise, who is expected to marry Philip one day (although Louise is interesting – but perhaps deliberately written like this and I’m still curious about her).
But Ambrose gets sick and is recommended to go to Italy for the sun. Philip, Ambrose’s letter was eager to wait at home. When he falls in love with Rachel, a distant cousin, he gets excited at first, but soon his hair is more worrying, wandering and talking about his headache and his wife’s poisoning and fear. He calls Philip to Italy, but when the young man arrives, Ambrose apparently died of a brain tumor.
