Cast & Crew
For 30 years Mary Ainslie has waited for Capt. Charles Winfield to return and make her his wife. A young man, a journalist on a Boston newspaper, is passing through the village and has trouble with his vision. He is taken to Miss Ainslie's by Ruth, the niece of a friend, Jane. The gray-haired woman is startled by his resemblance to the man for whom she promised to wait, and when she learns he is the son of Captain Winfield, now dead, she faints. From this moment, she slowly fades away, but before she dies she tells Carl that his father was once her sweetheart. Ruth and Carl, now in love, take this as a timely lesson in great devotion.
