The same idea having appeared a number of times before
20 August 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

While this comedy is not altogether new, the same idea having appeared a number of times before, this did not seem to act as a drawback in the New York Theater where it was seen. The gist of the complication is that the salesman has two bundles. One contains pansies, which he intends for his sweetheart and the other a pair of pants which he intends sending to a shop where another girl he knows is saleslady. The boxes are mixed by the intelligent errand boy and the girl receives the pants with a note which expresses the hope that he will see her wearing them when he calls that night. The resulting scenes, especially the last, where the girls, who know each other, come together, the wrong one wearing the pansies and the right one holding up the pants in disgust make the picture good; it is in the acting, especially of the wrong girl. - The Moving Picture World, February 10, 1912
