Storyline

His mother-in-law, whom Jones has never seen, writes her daughter she will visit her for a few days. She encloses photograph of herself. Mrs. Jones takes the photograph from the envelope and replaces it with a comic post card, labeled "His Mother-in-Law," advertising a show by that name. Jones reads the letter. He is furious, leaves the house in a "peeve." He meets a bill-poster putting up a one sheet of the play "His Mother-in-Law." In a mix-up with the poster he comes out second best. He goes home and hides behind a screen, ready to give his wife's mother a warm reception. She enters. He beholds a sweet, kindly lady, with whom he at once falls in love. His wife shouts with laughter: "April Fool!" Written by Moving Picture World synopsis
