Although extremely fond of society, he is practically ostracized. He is intensely fond of children but they flee from his presence at sight of his hideous countenance. This continual reminder of his misfortune proving too much for his soul, he retires to his country estate where he will be removed from encountering his fellow men. In this rural district lives a young girl who has recently become blind. She takes her old favorite walks, led about by her dog. Manners takes the same walks and one day when the dog broke away from his mistress and has left her helpless. Manners comes to her rescue. To his amazement she does not shrink from his presence and he discovers that she is blind. The inevitable happens. They marry and his life is lived simply and happily with her and their union is eventually blessed by a child. The mother love asserts itself and her soul cries out to see her baby. A famous surgeon, through a friend, carries a letter of introduction to Manners on a shooting trip into the country. While a guest at Manners house, he comes to the conclusion that Manners' wife may by an operation, have her sight restored. The surgeon mentions the matter to Manners, who has a great struggle with himself. He has told his wife of his disfigurement. He knows that her eyesight restored means the end of happiness for him. but the great longing of the mother for the sight of her baby decides him and the operation is successfully performed. On the day the bandages are removed, Manners goes into the darkened room in which his wife lies with the feeling that the end of his happiness is at hand and he stands before her fearing the look of horror and repulsion which he feels will come to her face when she sees him. When the last bandage is taken from her eyes, she picks up her baby and with her first sight sees it. At this point, the spring of a shade slips and a flood of light streams into the room; the delicate sight of her eyes is then gone forever. She saw her baby but her husband's hideous face was kindly spared from her memory. Does it end right? Written by Moving Picture World synopsis See less
