The Higgins family gets in another comical bind when Ernest loses the fortune in bonds he was hired to deliver. In order to recoup the lost $5,000, Papa Higgins decides to try and marry Grandpa to the wealthiest old widow in town by sending her a steamy love letter and signing his own father's name to it. Meanwhile, Papa also goes to the bank and much to his surprise, is granted a loan. Unfortunately for Grandpa Higgins, the widow has received the letter and joyfully accepted his proposal. When he tries to back out, she promptly sues him leaving the family in a real pickle.
