Storyline

The marriage of Jesamine Rogers to the wealthy Richard Denslow has not the sacred seal of love. The girl's ambitious mother deemed the ample Denslow dollar mark quite sufficient and her maternal domination leads to her daughter's sale at the altar. Jesamine loves Dr. Roderick Tredmore. Denslow is good to her, however, and so she did her best to be a loyal wife to him. Through a diabolical plot of a lawyer who seeks the Denslow fortune, Jesamine's husband is poisoned. Dr. Tredmore, now risen to fame, is called and saves his life. But Denslow, in the greeting between his wife and the physician, detects that her old love still lives. He declares that his marriage has been a sinful one, and permits his wife to obtain a divorce and marry the man she loves. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
