Storyline

Rich civil engineer Robert Penfield, goes to a small Quaker town in Pennsylvania to supervise a job, and while there he meets Patience, who soon falls in love with him, but Robert is engaged to Edith, who plans to marry him for his money only. In order to remain close to Robert, Patience returns with him to the city to take a job as his mother's secretary. After Robert and Edith's wedding, and following the birth of their child, Patience takes care of the baby much more enthusiastically than does the real mother. Edith, in fact, is preoccupied with Paul Dunstan, a former suitor who was not rich enough to marry her, but who has since inherited a fortune. Finally, the couple elope, but they both die when Paul's yacht sinks. Then, after the accident, Robert realizes that he loves Patience, and marries her. Written by Pamela Short
