Mrs. Maurice gives to the offering its best fun
The rich aunt (whom the three girls have never seen) is coming to choose an heiress. So the slavey is discharged and an efficient woman is sent for. The aunt comes first, is taken for the new servant and decides to keep up the deception, even making the maid, when she arrives, play that she is the aunt. None of the three girls proves to have the kind of temperament aunty is looking for (this is unusual in this story) so she apparently adopts the new cook. Mrs. Maurice, as the aunt, gives to the offering its best fun; but Kate Price, as the new cook, does her share. It is pretty well photographed. - The Moving Picture World, June 14, 1913
