The yachtsman suggests a short trip, and the delighted girl handles the steering wheel. A present of the field glasses is made to the girl by the yachtsman, and when the sailor, who loves the girl, learns this, he reproves her. She orders him away and he leaves, vowing vengeance.

There is life, action and an interesting story
15 February 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story of a summer courtship which has much of attractiveness. Not only does it tell a good love story, fascinating because it is a bit out of the ordinary, but there are exhibits of bravery in it which serve to give a few thrills and get one in sympathy with some development of courage. A combination of the two, worked out with the care usually shown by the Vitagraph people, cannot help making a very attractive film. There is life, action and an interesting story. Little else could be asked for. The dramatic elements are well developed, and the climaxes are worked out so that they hold the interest throughout the picture. The producers are to be commended for its excellence. - The Moving Picture World, January 15, 1910
