Tom's financial condition makes this additional responsibility almost impossible, but the sweet affection which the child instantly bestows upon him so wins his heart and endears herself to Tom that be feels repaid for the sacrifice. The little girl forms an extreme attachment for Manning and proudly calls him her papa to everyone, much to Tom's pride. Tom has a sweetheart that he left in San Francisco five years before. She, being anxious to see Tom again, begs her father to take her along on a business trip, which he is taking to New York. Dorothy wires Tom of her proposed visit and he and his adopted little girl make great preparations for her arrival. Dorothy in New York surprises Tom with a visit to his studio, but finds him called out by an artist friend. She finds the little girl in the studio and she innocently assures Dorothy that she is Tom Manning's little girl. Dorothy, thinking that Tom has been false to her, leaves and refuses to listen to any explanation from Manning, who returns to the studio just as Dorothy is leaving. Dorothy returns to her father and the old gentleman determines to demand an explanation from Manning, and they return to the studio in no very good humor. Carew, an artist friend, surmising the situation from seeing Dorothy leaving Tom's studio in grief, intercepts Dorothy and her father and explains the relationship of the little girl, who calls Tom papa. Tom, after Dorothy's departure sat in self-dejection before his fireplace with his little girl on his lap and they fall asleep. Dorothy, entirely reconciled and apologetic for her hasty conclusion, steals into his studio and finds the sculptor and the little girl asleep and awakens Tom with a kiss of forgiveness.
