Freed from Suspicion (1912)
On her birthday Mary receives a photograph of her college chum, which bears on the back the inscription, "Love from Billy." Her sweetheart, Tom, discovers the inscription, which he misinterprets, and Mary, coquettishly playing upon his jealousy, prevents him from seeing the likeness of her chum. That night, Tom, determined to see who his rival may be, enters Mary's home and is greatly humiliated when he learns that "Billy" is a girl. He hastens away, but the noise of his departure awakens Mary's father, who comes downstairs. In the meantime a maid has stolen Mary's purse and in the search which ensues Mary discovers the imprint of Tom's seal ring on an oil painting which she has recently completed. Mary suppresses the evidence against her lover and the young man is horrified when he learns next day that a robbery has taken place. He does not wish his sweetheart to know of the rash act which his jealousy incited and she, in turn, hesitates to ask Tom concerning the evidence against him. Through a chance discovery Tom learns that the maid is guilty. He forces her to return the purse and is restored to the good graces of his sweetheart.- Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
