Joe Fleming, a youth of twenty, earning his livelihood as a sailmaker
and supporting his mother and sisters by his trade, augments his
income by prize-fighting before so-called sporting clubs. On the eve
of his marriage to Genevieve, an employe' in the Silversteins' candy
shop, Joe is to fight his last bout before a club, having promised
Genevieve to give up "the game," which, while it seems wrong to her,
is to him a clean and manly as well as lucrative occupation. It is
Joe's desire that Genevieve shall witness the fight, and the girl has
reluctantly agreed to do so.
