Read Narrative
'... the author has shown wonderful foresight in delineating in such an interesting manner what undoubtedly will be the experience of many when the sword has been sheathed and peace again reigns. Mr Glaze's company, though small in numbers, is as good an all-round company as one could desire to see every artiste showing dramatic abilities of the highest order. The piece is easily followed, and its details permit of the several members exhibiting in marked degree histrionic proclivities which make drama pleasing and interesting throughout.'
