Adventures and Letters
Yvette Guilbert is at Hammerstein's and crowds the new music hall nightly, at two dollars
a seat. Irving and Miss Terry have been most friendly to me and to the family. Frohman
is going to put "Zenda" on in New York because he has played a failure, which will of
course kill it for next year for Eddie, when he comes out as a star. I have never seen such
general indignation over a private affair. Barrymore called it a case of Ollaga Zenda.
They even went to Brooklyn when Eddie was playing there and asked him to stage the
play for them and how he made his changes and put on his whiskers. Poor Eddie, he lacks
a business head and a business manager--and Sam talks and shakes his head but is little
better. Lots of love and best wishes for the New Year.
