Robert Rushton is a youth living in Millville whose father, a sea captain, has been missing for two years and is presumed dead. Before embarking on his last voyage, Captain Rushton entrusted $5000 in savings to factory owner Mr. Davis. It was understood that Davis would invest the sum during the captain's absence, but Davis used it instead to pay his own debts.
