Hughie Erskine is in love and wants to marry, but the girls father will not allow it, since Erskine has no money. Erskines friend, Alan Trevor is a painter, and he visits him at his studio one day to find him with a pitiable beggar—the model for his painting. Erskine only has one coin, which he depends on for transportation, but he decides he can walk for a couple weeks and gives the beggar the coin. The beggar is in reality an immensely wealthy baron, having a portrait of himself as a beggar done for fun. He is so impressed by Erskines generosity that he gives him £10,000, enough for the girls father to consent to his proposal.
