Elizabeth Deacon is in love with Howard, and she and the Count get their heads together to devise some way in which they can separate the lovers. Their chance comes when Howard is called away from a ball to attend his mother who is quite ill. He leaves a note for Mabel which is stolen and destroyed by the Count.

An interesting first reel. The second is even stronger
12 April 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

Depicting, in this two-reel production, the way in which a jealous couple interrupt letters between two lovers and bring about an estrangement. The ballroom scenes, the marriage of the girl to the scheming count, and the father's loss of fortune in Wall Street, make an interesting first reel. The second is even stronger, showing Bob's efforts to find happiness, and the way in which this was accomplished after five years. His finding of the small boy. The play in the gambling house, and the scenes in the church are all well executed. The photoplay, written by Marion Brooks, proves a very good offering. - The Moving Picture World, December 28, 1912
