Mrs. Van Court, who is giving a dinner party, receives word at the last minute of the twelfth hour that one of her quests is unable to attend. She is very much disappointed, but as her niece, Mary, is due on the same day of the dinner party from boarding school, she has Mary substitute in place of the missing guest. Mary, although quite a young girl, looks real cute in her long dress with its train, and is behaving like a full grown person. As Mary has not quite fully learned to manage her dress, she stumbles quite a number of times. Mr. Randolph, the guest of honor, is attracted by Mary's girlish ways, which she occasionally lapses into, and when Mary begins to dance with Mr. Randolph, she breaks down completely, and rushes outside. Randolph, in searching for her, discovers a photograph bearing her autograph as Mrs. Van Court's niece, and the secret is out. He finally finds her in the summer house, where he manages to dry her tears, and also produces a smile. It is needless to say ...

    Mary, as it chanced, came on a vacation visit to her aunt's the very evening she was giving a dinner to fourteen persons. One disappointed her. Mary was only a girl in short frocks, but her aunt let her dress up as a grown lady and come in in order to keep the unlucky thirteen at a table far away. Mary (Miss Fuller fills the part delightfully) has many amusing difficulties, especially with her long silk train. It makes a very pleasing picture. The scenes are well conducted and pretty. There is true, human experience under the comedy and the picture plainly pleased the audience. - The Moving Picture World, October 7, 1911
