After the death of the postmaster in the small town of Twin Forks, a package of letters is found in his desk, dated five years previously and never delivered. The delayed letters are put in the mail, causing numerous complications in the lives of the local residents. Amy Lufkin ( Mildred Harris ), complacently married to a fine man, receives a proposal from Lee Cross ( David Butler ), a former sweetheart who in the interim has made a fortune in oil. Andy Gillespie ( Hardee Kirkland ), the town drunkard, discovers that he has inherited a fortune. Irma Stacy ( Betty Francisco ), the druggist's wife, opens a letter from her husband's old sweetheart just as he opens one from her old sweetheart, causing a good deal of anger in both of them. Amy becomes dissatisfied with her lot until Lee Cross returns to town and proves to have become a vain, vulgar dandy, she then returns gratefully to domestic life. Irma Stacy and her husband make up. Fred Henley's ( Robert Agnew ) dog-raising scheme fails, and Andy, more sober than usual, appoints him the superintendent of his new factories, enabling Fred to marry his sweetheart, Agnes Bomar ( Gladys Hulette ).
This 1925 silent drama was produced by Renaud Hoffman Productions, starring Mildred Harris and Gladys Hulette. The survival status of Private Affairs is listed as unknown, sadly suggesting it may now be a lost silent film.
