"After Many Years," the rural piece in use. In the character of an elderly "rube" Boyd "acted" in the lighter passages, but when attempting pathos it seemed more like comedy.
Mr. Knowles is consistent, while Mr. Boyd is not. To lose a wife is not a joke, and Boyd may think the same , but you could not tell it n the sketch.
