    Mrs. Breuil, most of whose dramas and comedies have been deservedly popular, will add to her reputation as a writer of fresh plots by this love story of a working girl and a clerk in an express office. Edith Story plays the girl who loves, at first vainly, the clerk, played by Robert Gaillord. Zena Keefe plays the girl's younger sister, at first preferred by the clerk. Harry T. Morey plays a second clerk in the same office, a heavy villain's part, who gets Lena away from the other by getting him suspected of a theft. This gives Edith a chance to show true love and Lena a chance to show scorn. The man leaves America as a stoker and throws Lena's picture into the furnace. Director Frederick Thompson has directed with smoothness and convincing naturalness. It makes an excellent commercial release. - The Moving Picture World, November 9, 1912
