Note Relating to Cather
"In this wicked and perverse generation plays like Brother John and actors like William H. Crane are restful and wholesome. They are realistic with the realism of good and remind one that realism after all may not be an absolute synonym for evil.... As for the play itself, it is the work of a very clever woman and a very poor playwright.... Women can paint pictures and write novels, but never while the world stands will a woman mould a great statue or write a great play."
