Edgar Allan Poe led an …
Edgar Allan Poe led an unhappy childhood, broken only by the unceasing devotion of his foster mother, Mrs. Frances Allan, whose loving ministrations gave him courage to carry out his desire to write. His first love was Elmira Royster, and though she married another while he was at the University of Virginia, he could never purge his thoughts of her and, under the influence of her spell, he poured out the deepest passions of his heart. After a discouraging period during which he was disowned by his foster father and lost his appointment to West Point, he found the love that tamed his restless heart with Virginia Clemm. After he and Virginia married, Poe did his greatest creative work, writing for the Southern Literary Messenger and Graham's Magazine.

Although Mansfield tells him that there are no reporter jobs available at the newspaper, Barry is able to convince Mansfield to hire him in another capacity: as the fall guy. Whenever a disgruntled subject of a story or article comes into complain to Mansfield and to have the head of the person who wrote the story or article, Mansfield trots out Barry as the author, who, using his charms, is able not only to placate the disgruntled subject, but have that person feel sorry enough for him not to have him fired. Mansfield comes up with a further back story for Barry to be married with a child, so that the disgruntled person will feel even more sorry for Barry.

Problems arise when one of those disgruntled subjects is Winfield Jackson, Betty's father, she who accompanies her father into the newspaper office and meets "married" Barry.
