Apprentice pirate Frederic is finally twenty-one….free to marry Mabel, a daughter of the Major-General, and living a law-abiding life.  But Frederic, it seems, was born on February 29th, leap year day, and therefore is still only five years old!  Realising that he is bound to them for many more years, Frederic must now rescue the pirates he has just betrayed to the police.  But when the pirates are eventually identified as orphaned noblemen, all is forgiven and they marry the Major-General’s remaining daughters.
