In the depths of John's big, simple heart, love is growing for Ruth, daughter of the Rogers, staunch Quakers. Howard Clark, an idle, rich young man, makes it his business to become acquainted with the young Quakeress, and when she chides him for his reckless, sinful ways, he tells her that he would reform if she would help him. The girl is seized with the idea that the Lord has sent this man to her to be saved and she resolves to perform her mission. In the course of their talks, she falls in love with the reckless young fellow, and when he asks her to elope with him, she does so. The elopement causes grief to the old folks. John is greatly depressed. Clark marries Ruth and they live happily for a while at his home in the city.

It is a good story
21 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Arthur Johnson in this picture plays the role of a Quaker blacksmith, and plays it well. Also he directs the picture. He is in love with a girl who is won by a young man about town, who afterward neglects the bride. In a thrilling scene the blacksmith seeks out the erring husband and forces him to come with him to the wife. There he finds a baby. The husband's reformation follows. It is a good story. - The Moving Picture World, April 5, 1913
