Synopsis

On the very day that John Carteret is to wed Moonyeen, Jeremiah Wayne, one of Moonyeen's rejected suitors, inadvertently kills her while attempting to shoot John. Twenty years later, John's niece, Kathleen, announces to his shock that she is going to marry Jeremiah Wayne's son, Kenneth. John bitterly opposes the match and orders Kathleen never to see Kenneth again. The World War breaks out, and Kenneth goes to France, where he is badly wounded. Returning to the United States, he allows Kathleen (who has waited patiently for him to return) to believe that he has come to love another. Kathleen is heartbroken, and John, feeling her sorrow keenly, arranges for her to be united with Kenneth. With the young lovers together again, John quietly dies, joining the spirit of Moonyeen in the Great Beyond.
