Excerpt

JINNY. Just what I say! Get a man to keep you company, and then you won't miss any one.

BELLE. Yes, but attractive men with lots of money don't come into the Grand Central Station by every train!

JINNY. [Putting her arm about her.] You want too much, my dear Belle! And you aren't watching the Grand Central Station either half so much as you are the steamer docks for a suitable person. Now don't be angry; you know you want a good big title, and you've got the money to pay, but, my dear Belle, it's those ideas of yours that have kept you single till--twenty-six!--now that you must confess was nice of me, to take off three years!

BELLE. [Laughing.] Jinny, you're horrid!

JINNY. No, I'm not! You know I'm really fond of you, or you wouldn't be my bridesmaid to-day; it's only that I want your wedding to be as happy as mine--that's all, and here's a little gift for you to remember your disagreeable but loving friend by!

**...

Melodramatic play about a jealous woman ("green eyes") and a misunderstanding that threatens to end her marriage. It's a quick read, but nothing special.
