Sara receives a letter from her father, in which she learns that he has invested in his friend's diamond mines in India. The school is abuzz with excitement and Miss Minchin, anticipating great wealth for the Crewes, plans an extravagant celebration for Sara's upcoming eleventh birthday. But in a later, more distressing letter, Sara learns that what initially was supposed to be a foolproof business venture, guaranteeing enormous profits, has turned into an endeavor fraught with risk and difficulty. It doesn't help that Captain Crewe is also sick with a fever.
