Sweet was the light of his eyes... / Maine Historical Society

Evangeline is old and tired. She has become a Daughter of Wisdom in Philadelphia. She spends her days administering care to the poor, sick, and dying at an almshouse. Influenza is rampant. Suddenly she hears, "Evangeline," from the grieving lips of the dying Gabriel. As true with a romantic drama, the heroine is reunited with her beloved Gabriel so briefly.
