Mr. Roberts is entrusted with a priceless package
by a stranger on his train: her infant child.
She is particularly anxious, and her tale is not particularly
convincing, but he’s barely paying attention.
What could possibly go wrong.

In the Rail Car Series of WD Howells’s plays (such as The Parlor Car, read on May 9),
AND an Edward Roberts/Willis Campbell story–a series in which Howells developed his trenchant satire–
The Smoking Car is a light-hearted alert to the dangers of coming to the aid of a fellow human being.

Lest we forget!
