A Matter of Taste
A Victorian comedy by MOLLIE GREENHALGH
Adapted from the story by F. Anstey
Ella Hylton adored her good-natured fiance, George Chapman , but when it came to furnishing the connubial lovenesi, their tastes in decor did not altogether coincide. Fortunately, Fate, as she often does, stepped in and so cleared the way for a happy-ever-after ending to this Victorian romance.
