Exceptional charm
A two-reel number of exceptional charm, though it deals with the seamy side of life. Lillian Gish plays a girl from the country who runs away from her drunken father and reaches the city. A Chinatown loafer makes a thief of her. In the second reel she impersonates a girl who died, In order to steal the jewels from a blind mother. In spite of these incidents the ending is a happy one and very effective. This is unusually well photographed and is handled in such a way that its appeal is much above the average. - The Moving Picture World, November 14, 1914
