Storyline

Left with the care of his little grandchild through the death of his daughter, old Mr. Blinn tries in every way to give her the cure and attention which she needs. The little one is taken sick. His mind is disturbed and the strain and worry so upset him that he makes mistakes in his accounts and his employer discharges him. He never lets his little grandchild know of his position, always maintaining a cheerful appearance in her presence. Unable to secure employment he begs upon the streets to secure means to pay a physician to attend the little girl. Her sickness is a fatal one and when it seems impossible for the old man to hold out longer, she peacefully passes away. Left alone, the old man happily and resignedly awaits his fate and the summons: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant, enter thou into the Joys of the Lord."

Made some in the audience weep
22 October 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An emotional, pathetic picture of a little sick girl and her old grandfather. The old man was discharged and had no money. The little girl at home was never to know it and the old man went to heroic extremes to keep it from her. It is very well acted by Charles Kent as the grandfather and by little Miss Costello as the sick child. The picture gets over very effectively and made some in the audience weep. The photography is good and the whole management of the situation is commendable for its keeping within the significant things and for its economy. It is a sure feature. - The Moving Picture World, April 13, 1912
