He is accompanied by his daughter, Bessie, and her fiancé, Tom, a custom that has been hallowed by tender memories ever since her babyhood. The scene shifts to the next recurrence of the anniversary. Bessie, in the interim, has eloped, while under the malign influence of a quick infatuation. She is too ashamed and too proud to write a word of explanation to the captain and Tom, in their grief and loneliness. The poor, lonely old soldier tries hard to forget, but his grief is too poignant. Ho cannot even gather flowers again. His sole comfort is considerate Tom, who continues as his faithful friend. Five years passed. Life has been growing harder for Bessie, although she has been deserted by her worthless husband.

There, in the old garden, she finds once more love and happiness, after the flight of years.... search for The Wordless Message on IMDb|
