A Perfect Cure
A Perfect Cure is a play in one act by William Sapte, Jr. (fl. late 1800s)
The original text
This is the only reference found so far to a play by this name and written by W. Sapte, Jr., except for a brief reference in an American list of plays for girls which dates the play around the 1890s. Possibly F.C.L. Bosman (1980) took this information from adverts, reviews or the acting company's documentation.
Nothing much in known about Sapte either.
