Who Was the Culprit?
Description:A young army officer goes to visit her sister in the countryside. Perhaps due to the idleness of the country life, he begins to woo the governess of her sister’s daughter. Flattered, the girl soon falls in love with the officer. One day, while the officer is trying in vain to make the governess definitively fall at his feet, the little girl, who was chasing a butterfly, falls into the river. Immediately the officer dives into the river to save her. But the young governess would have been fired, if the officer had not come forward to clarify how it was his responsibility for the accident. Repented, the officer leaves the house.
