Content : On cover: Sung and illustrated with great success by Miss Ada Jones.

Content : Summary: On a crowded street a mother encounters her daughter and son-in-law; the son-in-law suggests the problem is the daughter's fault, but the mother reproves the son-in-law by asking whether he has the right to judge, since he led her astray; the son-in-law then asks the mother for forgiveness, acknowledging that the problem was his fault; the mother refuses a reconciliation, saying the son-in-law has broken every promise.
