Heine, Isa

The beautiful daughter of Ernest Heine, who fell in love with their English clerk, Herbert Onslow. Although Herbert was eventually to become a member of the firm, he became increasingly restless as the promotion failed to materialize. Isa braved her formidable Uncle Hatto, and with great tact induced him to accept Herbert as a partner at once, so that they could marry.
