Without anything of special interest
6 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

The wayward son is turned out of his home by the indignant father. He goes West and quits drinking. His letter home is never opened by the father, who dies later. The mother finds the letter and answers it, but the waiting son has become desperate and finds her letter only after he has robbed the mails. He gives himself up, but asks that the letter be returned to his mother, so she will not know of his crime. This is a fair offering, without anything of special interest about it, though well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, July 26, 1913
