Glass was present almost daily at bankruptcy meetings, closing of titles to real estate, and conferences with reference to the entrance into or dissolution of co-partnerships. The characters of Potash and Perlmutter were both Jewish, like Glass himself. The characters' Jewishness is highlighted by Glass' use of dialect in rendering their dialogue. One contemporary critic wrote: "His method is photographic and phonographic; that is, we get the life just as it stirs daily in the cloak and suit section of New York, and we get it through its own language.
The collection Lucky Numbers also includes one Potash and Perlmutter story. The use of dialect was carried over into the stage adaptations. Willa Cather wrote of the play Potash and Perlmutter , "[T]here is not an American in the piece and the only character who speaks conventional English is a Russian refugee. The characters seem to have been enjoyed by Jewish audiences.

Cather wrote, "During the long run of 'Potash and Perlmutter' here, we learned as much about the garment trade in New York from the very characteristic audiences as from the play. Far from dissenting or disapproving, the great Jewish population of the city packed Cohen's Theater night after night, roared at and applauded the play, greedily appropriated it, fairly ate it up.
Montague Glass' characters were not counterfeits. Glass' print and stage presentations of the characters Potash and Perlmutter were positively received by contemporary critics. In a two-page review, its critic James Oppenheim declared: "Mr. Glass is an artist.
Glass might employ his aptitude for creating memorable characters in future works to match the best works of Charles Dickens : "[I]t is to be hoped that this book is Mr. Glass' Pickwick Papers and that he is going on to write a David Copperfield. Willa Cather called Glass' play Potash and Perlmutter the "most successful - and the best -- play now running in New York.
Montague Glass" . In modern times, Glass and his work have been largely forgotten. Joshi cites examples of modern criticism of Glass' use of dialect, but responds: "There is no reason to doubt Glass' assertion, in The Truth About Potash and Perlmutter,  that the speech he places in the mouths of all his characters not just his two protagonists is the speech he actually heard as a lawyer in dealing with Jewish members of the garment and other industries in New York.
Certainly, the language he utilizes is not nearly as much a caricature as, say, that of Leo Rosten 's Hyman Kaplan. The use of Germano-Yiddish expressions adds richness and vibrancy to the characters. Glass wrote a series of stage comedies featuring Potash and Perlmutter, co-writing the majority of them with Jules Eckert Goodman. In most of these adaptations, the roles of Abe Potash and Mawruss Perlmutter were played respectively by Barney Bernard and Alexander Carr, both of whom were lauded for their performances by Willa Cather.
In addition, he was author or co-author of several plays that did not feature Potash and Perlmutter, including Object - Matrimony with Jules Eckert Goodman ; Why Worry? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Our American humorists.
