Virginia Hamilton is back -- this time imploring help for her seventeen-year-old son, who is being court-martialed for cowardice. Richard suggests that she engage Sir Geoffrey Dillon; she does, and though her son is found guilty, he is let off with a reprimand, due to his youth and to the circumstances. Edward, also suffering an attack of fear, goes AWOL.
