The last two reels are full of spirited fighting
14 October 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A three-part story of Colonial days, well acted and carefully presented throughout. We followed the fortunes of Hope and her Puritan lover with great interest. Her expulsion from the Puritan home for breaking a dish was convincingly portrayed, as well as the attempt to convict her of sorcery. Hope and her lover fare forth into the country, only to come back and save their former friends when they discover the Indians approaching. The last two reels are full of spirited fighting and grip the observer strongly. A good offering. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
