This short story, first published in 1904, is a romantic comedy with a touch of the thriller.

A lawyer walks onto farmland to discuss business with a young widow, however, an encounter with a savage bulldog results in him climbing up a ladder in a barn and sitting on a beam. The arrival of fellow humans does not solve the lawyer's predicament.

This brief tale is face-paced, with no pointless digressions, and features some quality dialogue. I like the originality of this story. George Barr
