"This is a very good farce," says Genest. George Selwyn expressed his satisfaction which is a relief from `Low Life above Stairs.'...The plot is rudimentary--that of a long-suffering master disguising himself in order to detect the rogueries of his servants...The printed book was also successful, and went through many editions, as was translated into German and French, and has been frequently produced on the stage in all parts of the world."
