Storyline

When our picture opens, Joe Flynn, a rider in the service of the government, has been shot from ambush by a masked man and is dying. Grouped at his bedside are his son Jack, a sturdy young man, the local doctor and the county sheriff. The old man dies and a week later we see Jack delivering the mail. The sheriff has inserted the description of the murderer in the Yuma Gulch Herald, and the country is being scoured to find him. Jack has a long and perilous ride between the two points of his route and is frequently beset with danger. Steve Benson, a desperado, who has killed old man Flynn, is living unhappily with his wife in hourly fear of having his crime discovered. His wife has read the murderer's description in the Yuma Gulch paper and the offer of a $1,000 reward. She suspects her husband, and, when in an altercation with her, she becomes convinced of his guilt, she writes to Sheriff Gordon and gives the information necessary to arrest Benson. She posts the letter with Jack, when ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It never ceases to satisfy until the picture disappears
1 August 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A thrilling story of an attempt to prevent the delivery of a certain letter which is frustrated by a girl in a very romantic manner. The riding is perhaps the most entertaining part of the picture, though when Jack announces his intention of marrying May one wants to join in the vociferous cheering of the assembled cowboys. There is something about the picture, possibly the faithfulness and sturdy bravery of May that appeals almost irresistibly, yet the story is simple. The heart interest is very strong, however, and once the story is opened it never ceases to satisfy until the picture disappears. - The Moving Picture World, August 6, 1910
