Now Mrs Harris goes to the United States.Undaunted by the prospect of travel,new ways,new faces and new placesmshe sets off gaily for the New World with her faithful but timis friend,Mts Violet Butterfield.Since Nrs Harris has a heart as generous as London itself,she soon finds heself committed to finding the real father of a maltraeted waif.Her search brings her into touch with every kind of American citizen,creates untold diplomatic complications and brings her both serious trouble and stout allies.
