Examiner of Plays' Summary:

This is a revival and largely re-written version of a previous Drury Lane Pantomime. The main story is still that of the miller's disinherited younger son, whose sole possession is his father's favourite cat, which is promptly endowed by a beneficent Fairy with the power of speech. To forward his master's suit for the hand of the Baron's daughter, the Lady Rosabel, Puss puts forward the miller's son as the Marquis Carabas and it is not until Rosabel's hand has been [sworn] that [...] him by his [...] protege. Most of the fun, as distinguished from the sentiment, is [...]Baron ad Baroness, who get into all sorts of trouble [...] efforts of fashionable entertainment. In this there is a [...] absence of vulgarity, while the songs - particularly the beautiful "Song of England" [...] ordinary [...] lyric. Recommended for Licence E. A. Bendall
