Not all of it is strongly convincing
It seems like harking back to good old days to find Miss Florence Turner and Mr. Maurice Costello playing a good romance together. The peculiarities of this situation, though, do not give much chance to either to portray any of those subtler shades of character which they have given us in the past. Those finer things, especially in Miss Turner's work, are marvelously pleasing. We are always expecting them, and every picture by the players without them, even in a case like this, where the offering has substantial merit, is somewhat disappointing. Mr. Costello plays the persistency; he is a lover suing for the hand and affection of obstinacy, played by Miss Turner. Not all of it is strongly convincing, the Iover's dressing as a woman, for instance, nor is all of it fresh. The lover's paying the expressman to let him deliver the package in the cap and jumper so as to speak to the girl who is in a pet and won't let him apologize, is not fresh, but it is acted in a natural, straightforward way, has a happy ending, has well trimmed sets and is clearly photographed. - The Moving Picture World, October 19, 1912
