  • According to the Shepparton Advertiser (29 April 1938):

    This is a tragedy of little things, in which the author has tried to demonstrate the old truth that real, human drama is not dependent upon catastrophe or great adventure, but that it is inherent in everyday life and in everyday people. The story occurred to the author while he was discussing with some friends the meaning, if any, behind the expression of a girl's face, a face immortalised in the famous oil painting, "The Girl with the Tattered Glove.”

    The painting in question is by William Nicholson, an English painter.
