Aka: He Would Be a Mountebank, The Young Acrobat, The Great North American Circus.  Christopher Watson, "Kit," lives with his rich uncle, Stephen Watson. Kit's father had been wealthy, and Kit believed that he would inherit his father's estate when he came of age.

Trained in the acrobatic arts, Kit surprises the performers by showing off his skills. Mr. Barlow eventually gives Tom a job as an acrobat. Kit quickly adjusts to circus life and establishes himself as a skilled acrobat. When the circus closes for the season in Albany, New York, a wealthy gentleman named Henry Miller, who an old of Kit's father, gets in touch with Kit.
