Bud Wheeler proposes to Jane Barton, who, because her father is an old, old man, tells him that she cannot marry just yet. Bud, thinking that it is not the real reason, goes west.

At last the letter is found, and with a heart over-brimming with love. Bud sends for her. And there, in the bosom of the west, are laid the final scenes of a beautiful love story that will linger long in the mind. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

Gave this reviewer more pleasure than any other offering today
14 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

Two people who love each other are kept apart by the loss of a letter, which the wind blows from the counter of the village post office. The letter is found years later and this lets in a happy ending. That this incident has been used in other pictures is more than made up for by the careful, natural and human way the action has been conducted. It is a good release and gave this reviewer more pleasure than any other offering today; we like it a good deal. Arthur Mackley and Jane Selby have the leading roles. The photography is very good. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
