The sketch was written by J. P. Sullivan. This is not nearly so much to his credit as his excellent Irish characterization. He has a first rate brogue, and handles his lines with effective unctuousness. Charles F. McCarthy injects a deal of good humor into a duenna role, and Maud Farrell does nicely in the third part.
The finish will kill the sketch for the better class houses. It is childish, consisting of the parade across the stage of Sullivan and Miss Farrell robed in white and playing ghost to frighten Mrs. Casey (McCarthy), Sweeney's bullying mother-in-law
