On the street back of Trevor's home was a house supposedly occupied by a wealthy East Indian, Abdul, who was in reality Trevor's body servant. The two houses were connected by a tunnel, through which visitors to Trevor could secretly make their way without being spied upon from the outside. On one occasion a well-dressed woman was injured in an accident outside of Abdul's home and was carried into his house to be attended to.

This pictureplay is interesting
15 July 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A two-reel release of the "Diplomatic Free Lance" series. The author is Clarence H. New. James Cruze interprets Lord Trevor in connection with the head of the secret service. Government files have been stolen, which include plans of coast fortifications. Flo La Badie in the character of Nan through clever subterfuge regains them for the government. This pictureplay is interesting and splendidly acted. The direction and photography are also well done. A good feature. - The Moving Picture World, April 18, 1914
