The Story

England is in the midst of Civil War. Cromwell is threatening to sequester the chattels of anyone who supports the Monarchy. Sir Jethro is in something of a quandary - King Charles has issued a similar threat; he's trying to keep on the winning side - not an easy job when his brother in Law, Lovelace the cavalier is hiding in the house and the roundheads are getting closer.
