Original review from the  Los Angeles Times  (Nov. 15, 1913):

Little Mary of Biograph fame … will appear in ‘Caprice,’ Mrs. Fiske’s former success. No better play could have been selected for her inimitable daintiness. It is a delightful comedy-drama of love and society, with an echo of the hills mingled with the voice of the city. Mary Pickford in ‘The Bishop’s Carriage’ broke all records at Tally’s Broadway. ‘Caprice’ should prove even more of a drawing card.
