A New One-Act Comedy by VIVIAN TIDMARSH
THE Scene is the parlour of the Smiths' house at Clapham. The play opens with a conversation between Maria and her daughter Lucy. Maria is a very dissatisfied woman, and her daughter's disposition may be easily imagined from Mr. Smith's description of her as ' her mother's never-failing echo.'
