Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Hughie Erskine is in love and wants to marry, but the girl's father will not allow it, since Erskine has no money. Erskine's friend, Alan Trevor is a painter, and he visits him at his studio one day to find him with a pitiable beggar—the model for his painting. Erskine only has one coin, which he depends on for transportation, but he decides he can walk for a couple weeks and gives the beggar the coin. The beggar is in reality an immensely wealthy baron, having a portrait of himself as a beggar done for fun. He is so impressed by Erskine's generosity that he gives him £10,000, enough for the girl's father to consent to his proposal. Quand on n’a pas de fortune, il ne sert à rien d’être un charmant garçon. Le roman est un privilège des riches et non une profession pour ceux qui n’ont pas d’emploi. Il vaut mieux avoir un revenu fixe que d’être un charmeur. Tels sont les grands axiomes de la vie moderne, et Hughie Erskine ne se les est jamais assimilés. Pauvre Hughie ! Au point de vue intellectuel, nous devons reconnaître qu’il n’était point un phénomène. Jamais il ne lui était arrivé en sa vie de lancer un trait brillant, ni même une rosserie. Cela n’empêche qu’il était étonnamment séduisant, avec sa chevelure frisée, son profil nettement dessiné et ses yeux gris. Il était aussi en faveur auprès des hommes qu’auprès des femmes. Il possédait toutes les sortes de talents, excepté celui de gagner de l’argent.
