Cast & Crew
John B. O'brien
On the eve of her elopement with Henry Traquair, Margaret Fielding is accidentally discovered in Traquair's apartments by his friends, Captain Richard Haynes and Walter Maxwell. Because the conditions, although innocent, appear compromising, Traquair introduces Margaret as his wife. An hour before the time set for the wedding, Traquair receives a telegram announcing the failure of his bank and his financial ruin. He declines to proceed with the marriage and Margaret returns home. Traquair, despondent over his financial losses, ends his life. During the next three years, Maxwell loses his sight, meets Margaret and, unaware that she was Traquair's "wife," marries her. They are very happy until Haynes visits and remembers Margaret from Traquair's apartment. She denies being involved in the incident, but when Maxwell's sight is restored he also recognizes Margaret. He packs his things and is about to leave when Haynes rushes in with a letter written by Traquair just before he died, which has followed Haynes half around the world, and which establishes Margaret's innocence.
