Evan Welsh's Engagement and Evangeline


Margaret reads a letter from her mother telling of the engagement of Evan Welsh and Betty Sherk. Evan's mother managed to break the engagement by using Evangeline, Margaret's sister, as a "replacement." But when she realized that Evan and Evangeline were serious about their relationship and were planning to marry, she opposed the plan and continued to cause them trouble even after they had gotten married. She could not stand "losing" her son.
