~Plot Synopsis~
Gerrit Ammidon sails for China believing that a feud between his father and Nettie Vollar's
grandfather, Barzil Dunsack, has ruined any chance of his future happiness with Nettie. In Shanghai
he rescues Manchu Princess Taou Yuen from a band of ruffians, then-given the choice of marriage
or her death-makes her his wife. When they return to Java Head, the Ammidon family home in
Salem, Massachusetts, Nettie falls ill at the news of his marriage. Gerrit is persuaded to visit Nettie,
and he confesses his true love for her. Dope addict Edward Dunsack reveals this to Taou Yuen,
whereupon she takes an overdose of opium and dies. Gerrit and Nettie marry and sail away.
