The newlyweds are befriended by Sailor Bob, who is busily perfecting the plans for his new submarine

Alas, tragedy strikes when Sterling falls into a laundry tub and is returned to Lotta's humble cottage cleaned and pressed

Her adorable baby Little Richard in her arms, the widow leaves the village to begin a new life but returns months later, only to expire on the steps of the Charity Hospital
