'it was written in 1913, and is therefore antecedent to the outbreak of the present war. The explanation is due since the locus of the play is placed in Austria, and the viewpoint expressed by a German character is pointedly prescient of the inhumane attitude of the nation with whom we are now in deadly grips.' ...'In essentials the play was worthy of the cordial reception it earned. In itself it was interesting and entertaining, and it was certainly well and carefully produced" "Edinburgh Evening News", 4 June 1915
