Gave this reviewer more pleasure than any other offering today
Two people who love each other are kept apart by the loss of a letter, which the wind blows from the counter of the village post office. The letter is found years later and this lets in a happy ending. That this incident has been used in other pictures is more than made up for by the careful, natural and human way the action has been conducted. It is a good release and gave this reviewer more pleasure than any other offering today; we like it a good deal. Arthur Mackley and Jane Selby have the leading roles. The photography is very good. - The Moving Picture World, August 9, 1913
