- For once in his life and to the astonishment of the Greyfriars Remove, William George Bunter does the right thing. But although he saves Bob Cherry from right under the gimlet-eyes of Mr. Quelch by owning up that it was he who placed a large and heavy dictionary on top of the classroom door as a booby -trap, he cannot save himself from an impot of nearly a thousand lines of the immortal Virgil to translate. With the Famous FIve to help it seemed all would be well and the lines would be completed with the minimum of effort from Bunter.
- But a visit from the Head put Billy Bunter back where he began. Meekly to do an imposition was not in his nature and help from home in the shape of a request to the Head for a few day's holiday was indicated. But instead of a means of escape Bunter, as a result of it, finds himself caught between Virgil at School and a week of work as an errand boy at home.
