Excerpt from The Flower of the Family: A Comedy in Three Acts

This play is modelled after the now fashionable 'Society' plays, where taste in setting the stage, and in the selection of apparel for both male and female characters, is indispensably necessary to success. No extravagant characters - with the exception of 'Spofford,' something of the 'Dundreary' style, and Newcomb, of the 'Col. Sellers' type - are introduced: the author's design being to present an every-day story, with a home setting, in which people we meet are the actors.
