Storyline

Rev. John VanBuren is worried about the health of his brother Dick, a stockbroker. John persuades his mother, who is blind, and his sister Bess to urge Dick to go away for a rest. Phyllis Lee (whom Dick has betrayed under promise of marriage) takes her invalid father to Florida. Dick receives a letter from Phyllis informing him of her father's grave condition and beseeching him to keep his promise. Dick, under pressure of business, finally collapses and is ordered abroad. John VanBuren is assisted in his philanthropic work by Ann Cruger. Ann is the daughter of Franklin Cruger, Dick's most powerful rival. Ann has noticed that John is tired out and needs a change. John goes to Florida for a couple of weeks. While there he meets Phyllis and her invalid father. Phyllis is startled at the mention of John's last name, but being sworn to silence she does not disclose the fact of her association with Dick. Phyllis's father grows gradually worse and the doctor warns her that the end is near. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
