In fact, there is no story
Two sisters love each other very much. They vow that nothing will separate them, but the elder one gets married and although the little one is invited to make her home with the voting couple she finds herself very much in the way and returns to her aunt. Not much of a story; in fact, there is no story, and that is just where this picture silhouettes itself out from the usual thing and gives us the consoling thought that the era of the picture is not on the wane and the illimitable field of subjects has yet been barely scratched. Yes, there is still hope when a picture maker can take up such a threadbare theme and build upon it a twenty minutes' panorama of human emotions so deftly portrayed and so enthralling that at the end the blasé audience in the old Union Square Theater breaks into loud applause. There is no straining after effect, simply skillful portrayal and natural action. Only in the closing scene is there any strong appeal to the emotions, when the lonesome child discovers the baby in her sister's arms and is requested to stay with the new playmate. It is a beautiful picture. - The Moving Picture World, December 31, 1910
