On the fourth of July in a small Connecticut town, seventeen-year-old Richard Miller has been inhaling the intoxicating fumes of literature, first love, and independence, and testing his good-natured parents with his awkward struggle to become a man. When his true love spurns him, Richard heals his wounds with booze and a tart's kisses in a roadside dive. How the Miller clan copes with his rebellious attitude is a study of family ties and horse sense, circa 1906.

In this madcap romp, friendship and irresistible desire clash: young masters Proteus and Valentine are the best of friends until Proteus falls for the new object of Valentine's affections, Sylvia. Forsaking his own betrothed, Julia, Proteus sets out to betray his unsuspecting friends, only to find that both sharp-witted women have a thing or two to teach hims about loyalty and love. Clever servants, disguises, and a dog named Crab enhance the zaniness.
