Storyline

Jasper, the negro janitor of an office building, asks Mr. Brooks, whose office he is cleaning, to write a love note to his sweetheart Lulu, as he cannot write or read. Mr. Brooks, while writing the note, is interrupted by a client. As he is talking with him, Mrs. Brooks drops in, takes a seat at her husband's desk (who is now in his private office), espies the letter, and leaves his office in despair. Just then Mr. Brooks emerges from his private office. He is dumbfounded at the note, and dashes out into the street to find her. However, after much talk, Mrs. Brooks is convinced that the letter is for Jasper, who quietly goes out. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Thought that the letter was the business man's own
2 April 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A man in an office begins a love letter after a conversation with his darky janitor. The janitor has shown him a photograph which this reviewer thought, at first, was of a white woman, the business man's wife. The reviewer also thought that the letter was the business man's own. It really was to the janitor's black lady love. The man left it unfinished on his desk and his wife came in and saw it. This furnished the situation. When the darky came for his letter, the photograph was shown again, but this time near enough so that the reviewer could see that it was not of a white woman. By that time this reviewer also understood the situation. - The Moving Picture World, August 19, 1911
