s Captain Jinks of the horse Marines (4 February, 1901). With no philosophic body of ideas moving American drama, it is surprising what an excellent number of plays can be mentioned as illustrative of certain definite types of drama. It is not a dead creative field which can point to the high comedy of A. E. Thomas's Her husband's wife (9 May, 1910), Thompson Buchanan's A woman's way (22 February, 1909), Harry James Smith's Mrs. Bumpstead Leigh (Lyceum Theatre, 3 April, 1911), and Jesse Lynch Williams's Why marry? (Astor Theatre, 25 December, 1917). Perhaps these examples are overtopped by Langdon Mitchell's The New York idea (Lyric Theatre, 19 November, 1906), which has an irony of universal Import—a tang of the Restoration drama, without its blatant Vulgarity—a critical sense of manners at once timely and for ever true. This ability shown by Mitchell makes one deplore the time spent by him on dramatizations like Becky sharp (12 September, 1899) and Pendennis (26 October, 1916).
