The subplot action closely parallels the action of the main plot. In fact, it suggests the resolution of the main action.

She subjected Peregrine to a tongue-lashing that produced in the English tourist a desire to revenge himself on Sir Politic.

At first, Sir Politic sends word that grave affairs of state occupy him. Peregrine supposes that he is trying to make sausages without one of the ingredients. Finally, Sir Politic deigns to give the disguised Peregrine an audience.
