~Plot Synopsis~
Rev. John Morton, who is determined to follow as closely as possible the teachings of Jesus, inherits
a considerable fortune when his uncle dies. Shortly thereafter he succumbs to the wiles of Mary
Carlson and marries her. To Mary's dismay, John uses his money for charitable work. When John
learns that not only has Mary been unfaithful to him but she was also his uncle's mistress and
became Mrs. Morton in order to share the inheritance she believed to be rightfully hers, he sends
her away with his secretary. Years later, John regrets his harshness; and he is reunited with Mary
when she appears at a home for fallen women, which he is dedicating.
