Mrs. Hall is the owner of an inn namely ‘Coach & Horses’. She is an impeccable business woman who gets to earn a good fortune when a wrapped stranger comes there to say and offers her two golden sovereigns. She harbours the man without verifying his identity and offers him good hospitality.
She remains doubtful since the very first day of his arrival about his covered face and odd habits. Her suspicion almost doubles when she observes hollow eyes of the stranger on entering his room. Her doubts turn into reality when she cuts the food supply of stranger for not paying his bills for a few days. Stranger exposes himself by taking his pink nose, bandages and napkin off. She gets too scared and even faints couple of times during the stay of stranger at her inn. Finally she manages to get rid of that devil in the end with the help of her neighbours.
