What do innocent little white boxes have to do with murder? Orson Wells tells all about how they won their place in the Black Museum. The case dates back to 1837, and a jury trial in Scotland. As Orson recounts the details of the trial, a love affair is revealed, as detailed by a series of love letters.
With such an endless love as that between Robert and Madeline, what could go wrong to ruin it all? It seems that Madeline had another boyfriend meeting with her secretly.
If the other man in the picture is just an old flame, as Madeline claimes, why does it complicate things so much? Somebody ought to let him know that Madeline has moved on. Is it the kind of complication that a little rat and weed poison will cure? Is there enough evidence to convict Madeline on?
Orson gives the verdict, and how Madeline was cleared. If only due to the chivalrous sentiments of her jury.
