Storyline

John White's sweetheart, May Webster, refuses to marry him while her old father is in need of her, and John goes west to take a government farm. Finding that their two ranch grants adjoin each other, he and Bob Strong become partners. Five years later Bob suggests that they get a housekeeper, and in spite of John's contempt of the idea. Bob adds a postscript to an order for some goods from a Chicago mail-order house, stating that if the company has any young woman who would care to go west and marry, to include her in the order. It is May who opens the letter and reads the postscript. After some correspondence between her and Bob, arrangements are made for the wedding, but the plans are suddenly changed when the young woman appears and meets her old sweetheart, John. The old love awakens and Bob is finally forced to give the girl up to his partner. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The action takes place mostly in their kitchen and sitting room
17 July 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An intimate picture telling a love story that ends very satisfactorily with the unexpected meeting again of two lovers foolishly parted and lost to each other. The backgrounds are mostly interiors, mostly in the home of two bachelor partners who are working a farm in Indiana. The action takes place mostly in their kitchen and sitting room, of which we see very well photographed corners, just enough to make us think we are in the room. We also get a glimpse of an office in Chicago, where the heroine, a stenographer, opens the mail order of one of the farmers. He gives a large order, then he adds that he also wants a wife. She considers a while then she corresponds and a few weeks later comes out with the purpose of marrying one of the farmers, but finds in the other her long lost, but still loved, sweetheart. - The Moving Picture World, January 13, 1912
