This is a good and amusing film

Jimmie appears in this picture in a very battered silk hat and the grandeur and ceremony of his salutations would become a marquis. Jimmie's clothes are wondrous; they must have come from a hundred rag heaps. Jimmie finds a handbag with money. The card with it gives him an address. As he stands at the gate, another small boy passes and Jimmie thinks that this boy's coat would be a little more appropriate for a formal call and he persuades him to exchange. The purse is in the coat pocket. When Jimmie discovers its absence, he knows, of course, where it has gone. The other boy's parents have discovered the money before he gets there, but he points a pistol at the man and makes him give the money up. The pistol he now shows is really a fan, the same kind of a toy that the Lubin Company used in a recent picture. This is a good and amusing film. - The Moving Picture World, August 26, 1911
