Their opening talk on second hearing excites admiration. An amazing quantity of swift wit is packed away in that ten minutes or so of give-and-take dialogue. The material is similar to what we have seen before only in kind.
Both men bring to its exposition distinct originality and an unaccustomed slant of humor. The duel and boxing bouts are admirable bits of burlesque that catch the breath half way in the throat with laughter, and wrench the laugh from the most blase vaudeville habitue in spite of himself.
