His father, being a man of wealth and influence, hires Captain Nichols, a crooked sea captain, to take the youth on a tour of the Malaysian Islands until the trouble blows over. On one of the islands they pick up Doctor Saunders, an adventurer, who is trying to get back to China. A storm drives them into a small island, formerly a Dutch trading post, but now abandoned except by natives and a few white families. The whites include Louise, a beautiful young girl whose father is devoting his life to translating what he considers to be a masterpiece of literature, and Eric, a powerful and somewhat innocent young giant. Fred and Louise fall in love, but Fred restrains his passion because of his friendship for Eric who is the only man he has ever met with high ideals. Human nature is too strong, however, and Fred visits Louise at night, although. she is engaged to Eric. ‘The latter sees Fred leave CARRIES YOUROWN THEATRE NAME=?
