Full of good sentiment
A two-reel story of Mission days, with Wm. Garwood, Ed Coxen, Vivian Rich and Jack Richardson in the cast. The story is allegorical and full of good sentiment. It deals with the lives of two brothers who inherit property after their father's death. The good brother is tricked out of his heritage and becomes a wanderer. The figure of Christ appears to him and leads him back to home and happiness. This feature is handled with a degree of reverence and good taste that make it acceptable. The release is a strong one of its type and is finely photographed. - The Moving Picture World, January 9, 1915
