All deserve praise
A motherly, almost grandmotherly, woman carries the honors of this splendid picture. Her role is that of a mother who rules with an iron hand, who is arbitrary, self-willed.

Charles Mailes is the clergyman whose services are interrupted and who halts them to denounce and put out the man who dared to pass a note to a member of his congregation. All deserve praise. The scenes where the blind mother, her money gone, rolls up her sleeves and goes out and nearly falls into the uncovered well; later, when she again goes to the well, this time determined to end it all, but is saved by the returned couple, are full of pathos, A film to be featured. - The Moving Picture World, July 12, 1913
