A comic portrait of D.H. Lawrence as someone who functions as an analyst for repressed women. Embroidering on his porch, Lawrence is visited by Miss Peabody. Adopting a Sherlock-Holmesian intuition, Lawrence divines that spinsterish Miss Peabody was propositioned by a man aboard a ferry, but in her passionate excitement she forgot his name and where they were to meet. Lawrence helps Miss Peabody recover her memory.
