Storyline

A widow and widower decide to marry. He has a son, and she has a daughter in a convent, to whom they are respectively devoted, and whose approval they wish, but they don't know how to break the news and arrange things. Finally he sends a telegram to Dick, calling him home, and she sends one to Angele. The two children duly start, and Dick happens to catch the boat Angele is on. It is a case of love at first sight, and finally they become acquainted. Convent-bred Angele will not tell her name, or allow him to disclose his. The case progresses on both sides, and when they reach their destination they part at her command, she promises to be his if he can find her. The widower acquaints his son with the news and takes him to call on his future stepmother. Angele is out, and misses them. Dick isn't very enthusiastic and manages to depart at the first chance. Later Angele comes in and meets her future stepfather. She is, of course, polite, but apparently doesn't approve any more than Dick. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
