Storyline

A foolish letter, written by a young girl, Louise, to her young lover, Prosper, hidden in their post-office, a statue. Three years later the girl returns, the wife of Baron Ravel. The lover also returns, and both try to get possession of the letter in the statue, their efforts producing many comedy situations. A mischievous cousin, Suzanne, sees them, and interferes just as Prosper succeeds in lifting the statue. The letter falls to the floor. Dinner is announced. Suzanne remains with Prosper and begs for the letter. He refuses; she wagers she will get the letter and make him burn it before her eyes. He accepts. The search takes place in Prosper's rooms, in which he conducts Suzanne, and laughingly goes out. In possible and impossible places she searches finally finding it in an old envelope in a tobacco jar. Meanwhile Louise, growing impatient, takes a handsome shawl and comes to Prosper's rooms. The Baron, recognizing the shawl, follows. Louise is hidden, but she leaves the shawl. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
