Storyline

In this comedy the story discloses that Clara, a stenographer is in love with Lionel, one of the clerks in the office in which she is employed. While absent from the office to attend to certain duties in the works, Clara takes possession of Lionel's typewriting machine and finding paper already adjusted, writes him a message to the effect that she loves him and will meet him in the park at 8 o'clock on the same evening. While passing the desk each of the four clerks in the office pick up one of the sheets, for it has so happened that Lionel was about to make five copies of a letter when he was summoned to the works. When quitting time arrives the clerks make inroads upon the petty cash box and prepare themselves to meet Clara in the park. The boss also gets one of the copies and hastens to keep the appointment. When he arrives, Lionel and Clara are making love and the clerks are standing in the background filled with envy and jealousy. The boss decides that, he is not the chosen one ...

Can be safely relied upon as a program lightener
28 October 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A little office farce. The male clerk has arranged his typewriter for five copies and the female clerk types a love note at the bottom of the upper copy. Everybody in the office getting a copy thinks it is for him. The Great Northern actors have their own individuality in these comic films. We think this offering can be safely relied upon as a program lightener. - The Moving Picture World, August 23, 1913
