~Corinne Griffith~
~Plot Synopsis~
Tom Merwin meets Althea Sherrill treking in the Northwoods, and she accepts his hospitality for the
night; a warm friendship develops, and Tom, sensing that she is troubled, promises to protect her and
pose as her husband accompanying her home. There Althea reveals that her child's father, Sam Bellows,
has followed from Montreal and threatens to turn over an affidavit of the child's birth to her father
unless she pays his price: marriage. She is abducted by Bellows, but Tom learns of her predicament and
trails them with a score of woodsmen and dogs. Althea's faithful dogs attack and kill Bellows, and the
papers proving that Althea's mother is the mother of the illegitimate child are destroyed by Merwin, who
is thereafter united with Althea.
