'No, Peter, one mayn't say anything of the kind,' said Miss Betty, pulling herself up and looking as dignified as she possibly could.

Two orphaned sisters, 17-year-old Angel and 13-year-old Betty, take on the task of rearing their 8-year-old nephew after word comes that his father has been killed.

They are very good girls; they teach him to be very good. He grows up. There's a happy ending. Insipid.
