A remarkably effective two-reel picture
20 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This is a remarkably effective two-reel picture of old colonial days, when the blue laws were in evidence and Puritans ruled the land. Priscilla is ducked in the pool because she becomes a Quakeress and later is banished from her village. But she and her lover discover that Indians are coming and hasten back to warn their former friends. The Indians were very picturesque. The escape from the blockhouse and subsequent blowing up of the structure, Indians included, was well devised. The wedding at the close was very pretty. A desirable release. - The Moving Picture World, August 16, 1913
