Ken has concussion from a cut on his head from the fight. He reassures Frank that he doesn't want to leave him. The residents are bothered by sightseers and Frank is snubbed by Florrie's customers. Harry is offered a lot of money for Lucky Lolita. The Banner newspaper gets in contact with Ken and asks him to write articles on "Life in a typical Northern town" for 180 guineas. Frank thinks Ken should write the articles for the money. Mr. Fanakapan, the landlord, is stirred into action by the article and offers to do all improvements to the houses himself. Harry and Len refuse to believe the article inspired him. Ken decides not to write the articles, but when Len thinks he's not doing them because he's had enough trouble Ken changes his mind.
