It is one of those Biograph sermons that have made a favorable impression
10 January 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

In this photoplay the fact is plainly illustrated that there are two varieties of bravery. One brutal and the other moral, the truest kind of bravery. This film represents a man who had comparatively little of the former, but when all others were frightened at the outbreak of a dangerous disease, he nursed the victims back to health, almost losing his own life in doing it. The film is one of those that appeal very strongly to a sentiment which lies dormant in the heart of every person and always is ready to appear on any display of true courage. It is one of those Biograph sermons that have made a favorable impression ever since they began to appear upon the screens. Through it runs a love story which gives it heart interest and develops more tenderness than would be the case without it. When love and bravery are united the resulting film is always apt to be pleasing. - The Moving Picture World, April 29, 1911
