Mr. Nuttel meets Mrs. Sappleton’s niece, Vera, when he first arrives at the Sappleton’s house. Mrs. Sappleton is busy and can not meet him immediately. To keep him company, Vera sits with him as he waits for Mrs. Sappleton. The story begins with Vera speaking to Mr. Nuttel:

"My aunt will be down presently, Mr. Nuttel," said a very self-possessed young lady of fifteen; "in the meantime you must try and put up with me."
