On his way out, a young lady who has just completed a love letter asks Ambrose to mail it for her. He puts the letter in his coat pocket. Charlie goes to a store and buys a bottle for the baby, which he puts in his coat pocket. The two men meet at a restaurant and each takes the other's coat by mistake.

Charlie Chaplin in: The Immigrant


Charlie is on his way to the USA. Immigrant Chaplin tries to make the best of the nausea-inducing rough seas. He then befriends fellow Edna and her ailing mother. He wins in a card game, puts the money in Edna's bag (she and her sick mother have been robbed of everything). When he retrieves a little for himself he is accused of being a thief. Later, broke, Charlie finds a coin and goes into a restaurant. There he finds Edna, whose mother has died, and asks her to join him. When he reaches for the coin to pay for their meals it is missing (it has fallen through a hole in his pocket). A famous artist decides to hire the girl as his model. Chaplin negotiates an excellent contract for his bride.
