Synopsis
The Widow has spent a year mourning the passing of her husband. Now a neighbor, the Boor, comes to her demanding payment of an old debt left by her departed husband. The Widow refuses to pay the debt and the Boor refuses to leave until she does. Their argument becomes more and more heated until finally the Widow challenges the Boor to a duel, bringing out her late husband's pistols. This show of spirit on the part of the Widow impresses the Boor greatly. He swears his newfound love to the Widow, asking for her hand in marriage. The Widow continues to threaten to shoot the Boor but begins to weaken at his show of devotion, and with one last threat she kisses him.
