Storyline

A whimsical farm girl writes a message on an egg that finds its way to a city restaurant where it is served to a young man. Intrigued, the young man sets out to locate the message-writer. He makes the long and arduous trip by train to the country and confronts the young woman, who, much to his dismay, doubles up her fists and hits him. The next scene shows the young man boarding a train, and the young woman on her knees beseeching him to return to her. Written by Library of Congress paper print directory

There is a sparkling quality to this picture
19 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A humorous hit at two things; first, the practice of writing on an egg or some other article, asking the finder to write and second, the present custom of putting eggs in cold storage for indefinite periods. The man who got the egg replied to the woman who put her address upon it. But the denouement is different. The egg had been in storage for twenty years. No further description of what happened is necessary. There is a sparkling quality to this picture which makes it even more attractive than its title seems to warrant. The producer has given evidence of his ability in extracting fun from a cold storage egg. - The Moving Picture World, September 17, 1910
