With the Portwenn Players annual dance coming up, Louisa tries to interest Martin in attending, but when
he turns her down she gives her extra ticket to Mark Mylow who immediately misunderstands and thinks
they now have a date.  When Martin hears about it, he too misunderstands. Martin visits Stewart James, a
recluse who thinks he lives with Anthony, a giant 6-foot squirrel.  Martin wants to have him sectioned, but
reconsiders following a subsequent visit.  Young Peter Cronk gets into trouble when he's accused of
destroying bird houses and feeders in various back gardens and runs away.
