There is plenty of logical fun in the piece
21 October 2015 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A lively comedy representing the difficulties into which a woman was plunged because her maid decided to get married and sent one of her mistress's pictures instead of her own. Mrs. Gaylife was herself a little involved because she had a friend come in to help her wile the time away while her husband was absent. When the man on marriage bent sees the face of the maid he makes a getaway that would do credit to anyone in a hurry to arrive at some particular destination. The film contains much of fun and numerous comedy situations, which are not of the chase or trick variety. The slapstick is missing, too, but there is plenty of logical fun in the piece. - The Moving Picture World, January 14, 1911
