Well developed
A very creditable two-reel production. It has an interesting story, well developed, and played in an intelligent manner. David Lythgoe, Vivian Rich, Harry Von Meter, Jack Richardson and Louise Lester are the chief members of the cast. The picture treats of political intrigue, and the almost ruined happiness of a family through a scandal villainously created by a member of the opposing force. - The Moving Picture World, May 22, 1915
