A fictional portrayal of events in the life of Corianton, one of the sons of Alma the Younger. Corianton walks with the woman, who introduces herself as Joan of Siron, and claims she is kin to Seantum, the Zoramite with whom he is lodging. She flatters him and appeals to his vanity. He joins her in a party at the house of Seantum, dancing with her and partaking of wine. She departs after midnight, wherein he feels guilt at his indiscretion and how the other missionaries would react to it, but he continues among the other revellers until he passes out.
