A sketch of a character that lacks conviction. An Isrishman and his wife. After the letter comes, he makes extravagant purchases of furniture and clothing until a second letter comes and informs him it was a joke and he must send all his purchases back. Mr. Gunn plays carefully but Miss Arnot does not enter the spirit of her character. Her make up is not convicing.
Some diaologue relating to their poverty, until a letter arrives informing him he is the heir of his uncle who has just died in Ireland. Miss Arnot's brogue is sometimes at fault.
Too loosely constructed to hold the interest.
