Dorothy Daniels promises to marry her boss, Waverly Hamilton, if he will give her friend -- actually her sweetheart -- Jim Reynolds, enough money to go to Colorado for his health. Jim's real reason for making the trip is that he has recently stolen some money from Waverly, but he conceals this from Dorothy and convinces her to keep sending him checks. Dorothy gradually comes to love her husband and realizes Jim's true character when he returns and threatens to blackmail her with their love letters. Waverly, overhearing Jim's threats, confesses that he knew of their relationship from the first but had hoped in time to win his wife's love. Finally, Jim is arrested, and the married couple begins a new life together.
