He convinces Elizabeth that he can no longer tend to the big house by himself, and she reluctantly agrees to let him hire the people he claims are so urgently needed: a nurse/companion, a housekeeper, a cook and a groundskeeper. Who-done-it? Your audience will be shocked when they finally find out the answer. Learn More
