Notes:
"Copyright, 1919, by Stewart & Kidd Company."
"The three plays included in this volume have all been presented successfully both in the east and in the west. The two long plays - 'The Lady of the Weeping Willow Tree' and 'Jonathan Makes a Wish' - both have the distinction of being popular with audiences and unpopular with critics ... As for the third, 'The Very Naked Boy,' it is a thoroughly delightful trifle, unimportant as drama, yet very perfect in itself, and has been liked by nearly everyone."--Preface.
