The announcement of Miss Pearl Vambrace’s engagement to Mr. Solomon Bridgetower, with a wedding date set for November 31, has been placed erroneously in the Salterton Evening Bellman, causing its editor and the families of the non-betrothed great distress. In telling this humorous story, Frederick Davidson is so disdainful of the tribulations of the townspeople that it distresses the listener and ruins the story. He does the characters well, each with his and her eccentric sounds, but his languid voice suggests he’s doing everyone a favor and imparts a tinge of contempt to everything.
