Storyline

Sitting one evening at the table in the gleaming of life's passing hours, an old couple are looking over the correspondence of their younger days. The old love letters recall the happy days when their hearts were young and their fancies free. Each letter, as they read it, brings before them a vision of the past. First can be seen the intervention of her stern parents, making her reject the man to whom she is now married, and wed for money instead of love. The martyrdom of their love, in their marriage to someone else, is most vividly presented in the scenes which are brought before us. The death of her first husband, and his first wife, her meeting again with the man of her first and last choice, now sitting beside her in sweet contentment in happy anticipation of the future.

It is a picture played by artists
12 November 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A love story, told in dream light of memories, as two elderly lovers open again and read their old love letters. Miss Edith Story and Mr. Leo Delaney play these parts and the art that is revealed in interpreting them is fine. The story is tragic. The love-match is broken by the girl's father (Mr. Tefft Johnson), who makes her marry a loathsome man of great wealth (Mr. Harold Wilson). Mr. Wilson makes this part hideous; it is a very praiseworthy piece of work. He soon dies in the picture, as does the woman the lover married. It is a picture played by artists. The camera work, in both pictures is fine. - The Moving Picture World, May 18, 1912
