Characters
Howard Parker; Mona Morrison [as Mona Smith]
Synopsis
Howard romances Mona on vacation, thinking she's rich. They fall in love and she admits she's not who he thinks she is; he confesses he's poor and was looking for a rich wife, but it doesn't matter now. The next day, Mona informs Howard that she actually is rich, but wanted a man who loved her for herself. So they each get what they wanted.

Indexer Notes

The plot is confusing. Howard apparently chooses Mona in the first place because he thinks she's rich, but on the second page of the story he says "Baby, you can't be a typist!" which implies he thinks she works in an office. Then on page three he thinks Mona is "bona-fide rich."
