SUMMARY
Fred Manning, the European buyer for a large department store, is engaged to Mabel Moore. On the eve of his trip for Europe, he takes Mabel to see the flat he has rented and partly furnished for them to occupy on his return, when they are to be married. He gives her the key to keep. He leaves for Europe via New York. At the first station out he telegraphs Mabel, "1 love you." Later on at another he wires, "I love you forever." From New Fork he wires again the same message, but the operator, a new man, gets things mixed and sends to Mabel "1 leave you forever." She faints at the shock, while poor, unconscious Fred sails for Europe. He is miserable because he has received no letter. Two months pass. Mabel has been very ill and is recuperating at a health resort. When it is time for Fred to return, she sends all his letters, ring, key of house, etc., back, care of the firm. Fred arrives and finds them. He gets her address, starts off to the health resort, sees Mabel, the' mistake is explained and everything ends happily. Written By Moving Picture World synopsis  Less
