Philip Jettan cares nothing for style and society. The Sussex squire's son confines his pursuits to farming and his captivating neighbor, Cleone Charteris. But Cleone is simply lower back from London, where she's attracted the eye of a rushing new suitor who is schooled in the artwork of courtship. Looking at her old buddy with new eyes, Cleone dismisses Philip as "a uncooked u . S . Bumpkin," so the wounded younger farmer retreats to Paris to accumulate refinement. Returning as a fashionably attired man of the world, Philip astounds Cleone together with his new manners—but to his dismay, he discovers that he may have lost his sweetheart alongside with his rough edges.
