|Plot||'Arriet Rogers, the daughter of a retired costermonger, Tom Rogers, has two very ardent suitors, Bill Larkin and Bob 'Armon. Bill is a sailor at the London docks and is a very steady young fellow. Bob, on the other hand, is not nearly so steady, but makes a lot of money betting on horses. In this way, by helping him rake in several good pots. Bob curries favor with old man Rogers, who promises him that he shall wed his daughter, 'Arriet. They are married in great style and look regular toffs on their wedding day, driving down Whitechapel in grand style. Bill is abroad in his ship and does not hear of the wedding until long afterwards. Luck is fickle and soon turns against Bob 'Armon, who loses not only all his own money, but all the savings of his father-in-law. Then he takes to drinking heavily and badly ill-treats his wife, who is about to present him with an heir. His drunken and thriftless habits are such that old man Rogers soon dies of a broken heart, leaving 'Arriet in the sole care of her now utterly brutal husband. Even after the birth of 'Arriet's baby, Bob continues his downward career. After a drunken row in a public house, in which he severely wounds a pot companion, he is obliged to flee the country and leaves his wife utterly penniless. 'Arriet has now no means of supporting herself and the baby and is reduced to such straits that she is obliged to beg in the streets, to save herself from starvation. One day, when soliciting alms in a public house, she meets Bill Larkin, who has just returned from a long voyage. She recognizes him, but so weak has she become from lack of food, that she is unable to bear the shock and sinks to the floor in a swoon. Bill has her carried to her home and sends for a doctor. It is too late, however, for starvation has so shattered her health that she dies the next day, after receiving Bill's promise that he will care for her child as if she were his own. Bill faithfully fulfills his vow for the sake of the little woman he so dearly loved,... see 'Arriet's Baby on IMDb|
