SYNOPSIS

Harry Littlejohn says goodbye to his fiancée, Evelyn Haselton, and heads West to seek his fortune, where he contracts pneumonia and almost dies. Dr. Jim nurses Harry back to health and the two men become fast friends. Later, the doctor travels to the East to visit a dying friend, falls in love with the ailing man's daughter and marries her.
