Mr. Hadley, anxious to put through a big deal, writes his uncle, whom he has never seen, advising him to invest some of his money. The uncle wires Mr. Hadley that he will call on him and bring the money in person. Meanwhile, Mr. Muchmoney, who has a mania for writing checks, gets away from his keepers and sneaks out of the sanitarium. He wanders along, and then, deciding to visit an office building, presents himself in Mr. Hadley's establishment while that gentleman is out. Thinking that he is the rich uncle, Ethel entertains him until the boss returns. He writes a small fortune in checks, buys a few automobiles, and keeps everything lively - until his keepers succeed in tracing him to the office. On the arrival of the real uncle, after many painful experiences en route, things are squared. Reel Life, 28 November 1914. Written by
