Mr. Editor:
"Bought and Paid For," the big
gest play of our time, and which will
be tho attraction at the Lyric next
Monday evening, carries my person
al guarantee. It Is the same In every
particular as drew packed houses for
two years at my Playhouse in New
If you find anything to criticize
any slurring or inattention by tho
players, or any potnt about the stago
equipment that does not justify tho
highest claims of the management
I shall esteem it a very great favor
to have you write me in detail at my
oflices in the Playhouse. New York.
It has been asserted in some quar
ters that lack of interest in amuse
ments in all but tho few largest cit
ies has been caused by short sighted
managers who sent inferior compan
ies and shabby scenery to these cen
tres. I am determined that my
name, when attached to an attrac
tion, shall be a full assurance of the
high value of that attraction, and I
bespeak your assistance to that end.
Any proper complaint you may
make will receive prompt and re
spectful attention.
