A unique little story
21 April 2019 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A unique little story, featuring Ben Wilson as a shoemaker. He has a wife and ten children. He tries to leave one on a doorstep and the police send him home with two, one baby being left by a young mother. The picture of the numerous children asleep is certainly amusing. Happiness results upon the discovery that the eleventh child has a thousand dollars pinned to it. - The Moving Picture World, November 21, 1914
