- Summaries (1)
Moving Picture World -- After the death of her husband, Mrs. Bennett is left alone in the old farmhouse to dwell upon the memories and keepsakes of the past. Her son Howard, who went out into the world at an early age, now a man of wealth, residing in the city, is married to a woman of social prominence. He wants his mother to come to the city to live with him. She is loathe to leave. She takes particular pleasure in her little rose garden, in which are the graves of her husband and daughter. Howard does everything possible to make her residence with his pleasant, but she does not seem to enter into the modern ideas of society. She grieves, and longs to be back in the quiet and hallowed surroundings of her own home. She gets possession of the key, which she had given to her son when she left the old farmhouse. Gathering her few belongings together, she leaves the mansion and makes her way back to her own domicile. As she passes through her garden she finds the roses withered and pauses to shed a loving tear over the graves of her dear ones. She enters the old sitting room, sits down to rest and meditate in sweet communion with her cherished memories. Opening her Bible, she finds between the pages the pressed roses, tokens of her husband's thought of her. Her son discovers his mother's absence. He and his wife go to his mother's home, where they find her sitting in the old arm chair, with the open Bible before her, her finger pointing to the words: "And in this place again, they shall enter into My rest!" a smile upon her lips, gone to meet those who have gone before her.
