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.
