A footman in Lady Bountiful’s house threatens to expose the beaux if Archer does not accede to his demands, but Archer remains steadfast in his love for Aimwell. When Dorinda arrives to respond to Aimwell’s marriage proposal, Aimwell tries to rescind his offer. But Dorinda has her own plans for the beaux
