Filled with heart interest and suspense
30 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very interesting and original two-reel picture with a strong plot, filled with heart interest and suspense. A marriage that is kept secret and an unopened letter is the theme of the plot. The acting by all is meritorious and every detail in the picture finely accomplished. - The Moving Picture World, May 9, 1914
