Every few months he fell in love with some girl or other, and invariably he married her. At the time our story opens, he had twenty wives. When word was brought to the Sultan that a beautiful American girl, with wheels on her feet had been captured by bandits in one of the outlying portions of his realms, his collector's instinct was aroused. In his entire list of wives, he did not have a single American. None of his wives had wheels on their feet. Instantly he commanded that the fair captive should be brought before him.

Epes Winthrop Sargcant is the author; but the players (Herbert Prior, as the sultan; William Wadsworth, as the vizier; Alice Washburn, as a slave who plainly knows the ropes about the court, and others, including Elsie McCloud as the American beauty with "wheels on her feet" and Arthur Houseman, as a roller skate salesman) help, and add to the fun by their acting.
