Plot of The Inconvenient Marriage of Charlotte Beck
Charlotte Beck is a young girl visiting her grandfather in London when she begs her stepmother, Gennie, to allow her to be introduced to society. Although Charlotte is technically too young for being presented, Colonel William F. (Buffalo Bill) Cody, who is Charlotte's father's business partner and practically family, helps her convince Gennie. Charlotte is presented at the home of the Hambly family.

Charlotte falls out a window while trying to get some air and lands in what she believes to be the arms of Martin Hambly, the future earl. It is in truth his twin brother, Alex, who often takes Martin's place at social functions when Martin is otherwise engaged. This evening he is out slumming dressed as a stable hand.

Charlotte realizes the possible embarrassment she has caused and apologizes to everyone concerned. She further embarrasses herself and her uncle by performing in the Buffalo Bill Cody's Wild West show. Her embarrassment winds up in the newspaper where it further inspires other ladies of wealth to become a part of Cody's show.
