As the husband leaves for the lumber regions, his wife gives him a memory message to be opened after his arrival. Attracted by a maid, cherished by the love of two old brothers, he forgets it until sometime later. The message serves its purpose, however, for through it, after a thrilling experience, the maid learns the true value of the man's love, while he in his turn, goes back to his waiting wife and finds there, along with his shame and regeneration, his heart's desire.

    A character sketch such as many Biographs have been, but not quite up at the remarkably high standard of this company. In the background, we have a fresh and very interesting glimpse, it is hardly more than that, of the lumber business. The story shows how a light-'o-love traveling salesman is cured of his too-ready liking for other pretty women and goes home to his wife. In its object, it is serious; but there is comedy of a rough kind in it that comes up in a fight the man has with a little mountain girl's lumbermen friends. He was caught trying to elope with the girl and made to confess to her that he is married. It pleased an East Side audience very much. The photography is good. - The Moving Picture World, November 16, 1912
