James K. Paulding and William Irving Paulding
American Comedies. By J. K. Paulding and William Irving Paulding. Contents: The Bucktails, or Americans in England. The Noble Exile. Madmen All, or the Cure of Love. Antipathies, or the Enthusiasts by the Ears. Philadelphia: Carey and Hart, 1847. —These completely forgotten plays are full of the kind of warm wit one would expect from James K. Paulding, and there are enough clever lines to keep any audience amused. Something could be made of them in our theater of today.
