A Comedy by James L. Hodson, played by THE STATION DRAMATIC COMPANY

Presented by VICTOR SMYTHE -
Time: The Present. The Hour: Five on a summer's week-day afternoon
THIS is a little comedy of present-day Lancashire. The sunshine of a late summer's afternoon is pouring through the drawing-room windows of a fair-sized' house in the village of Moyton. Its rays illuminate the room and show at once that Mr. Urime, the owner, believes in solid comfort rather than pretentiousness.
When our play opens, Mrs. Cheetham, who is dressed in a plain but neat dark blue suit, and 'looks younger than her actual age, which is forty-five,' is standing by one of the windows which overlook the garden. She has been paying a call on Mr. Grime, who stands near her, and she is now about to take her departure.
