Description

John Peerybingle, a carrier, lives with his young wife Dot, their baby, their nanny Tilly Slowboy, and a mysterious old stranger with a long white beard. A cricket constantly chirps on the hearth and acts as a guardian angel to the family,
at one point assuming a human voice to warn John that his suspicions that Dot is having an affair with the mysterious lodger are wrong.
