Monsieur is a prosperous man in Paris, and is just sending his young daughter to complete her education at one of the nearby convents. From the affection shown between father and daughter it is evident that her mother no longer survives. News reaches him of the disaster which sweeps away his entire fortune and leaves him penniless. He writes to his daughter and tells her of the great change in their affairs, and that America seems the only hope of retrieving his fortunes. In New York, we find that he has taken a very modest little apartment, to which he, months later, brings the daughter, who takes up her share of the work and does the cooking. She receives an invitation from a girl chum to attend a party, where she meets the girl's brother, with whom she falls in love. When he and his sister come to call at the little apartment they are welcomed by Monsieur, but as the old man has an engagement at the club, departs. Again he and his sister come to take Monsieur's daughter to the theater, and Monsieur bids them an almost discourteous adieu in his haste to be off to his club. After the theater the young American suggests a little supper, and takes the two girls with him to the Hermitage Café. In the private room which they have engaged a waiter appears to take the young man's order while the girls are taking off their wraps. The waiter is none other than the old French nobleman, who, by this means, is supporting his daughter and keeping the fact of his employment a secret from her and from the world at large. Of course the young man at once understands the situation and why Monsieur dresses in his evening clothes every night, and jumping into the breach, he summons the proprietor, has an extra place laid, and when the girls come, tells them that the little surprise he has prepared for them is the addition of Monsieur as another guest to their party, and to still further cover Monsieur's agitation, the young man proposes to make it a betrothal supper, and he asks Monsieur to give him his daughter and his blessing. Of course Monsieur is happy to do it, and the young woman seems to be rather more pleased, if anything, than her father.
