Storyline

Nellie Blair and her father, an invalid, are in hard circumstances, due to the long illness of the latter. They have mortgaged their ranch and the mortgage is held by a young millionaire in a distant city, a local agent, however, representing him. Howell, the agent, however, representing him. Howell, the agent, an unscrupulous and crafty schemer, loves Nellie, and having proposed to her unsuccessfully, finally resolves to make use of the mortgage which he, by law, may foreclose at any time.

As good as any western story of recent date
19 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A love story between a young millionaire and a Western ranch girl is not exactly a novelty, yet in the hands of the Essanay's company of capable players it assumes fresh interest. The situation of the letter, with the postscript torn off is really the basis of the story, and affords an opportunity for some clever work. It is, perhaps, as good as any western story of recent date, and the denouement, when the millionaire compels his agent to admit his own duplicity supplies an intensely interesting climax. The love affair between the young man and Nellie is, of course, a necessary finale. The picture is good, and contains enough human interest to hold the close attention of any audience throughout its length. - The Moving Picture World, September 17, 1910
