Examiner of Plays' Summary:

A simple, agreeable little comedy. Lightwood, aged 44, proposes to take a commission in the Sportsman's battalion and consults his doctor, who finds a weakness in his heart which no army doctor would pass. He does not wish to alarm his wife and so, when she is eager for him to take the commission, he fobs her off with other excuses. The result is she thinks him a coward, but happily finds out about the doctor from the maid and so all is well. Recommended for license. G. S. Street.
