Henry notices her copying the address and he does so also, intending to make inquiries about the matter. Prettyman is a clerk in the same office as Jack Martin, Tabitha's husband, but does not know who the lady is. Henry and Tabitha meet again that evening at Mme.

Brings out a number of giggles

The story concerns a fat man and fat woman who decide to take reducing exercises without telling their better halves. This leads to complications at the gymnasium, where the suspicious wife and husband appear and create a scene. But the feud does not last long and winds up with a dinner party. Quite amusing. - The Moving Picture World, July 5, 1913
