' JABALPUR, Central Provinces, India, July 31, 1908.
Dear Mr. Steinway: i ' ■ '■ '.:*;.;_-'
'■■ ':"', „- I am having a photograph forwarded to you which I believe will
prove of Interest to yourself and other members of your firm. It Is a
picture of a Steinway Piano on the move In Central India. ■;''...
,1 am tho fortunate possessor of one of your beautiful drawing
room Grands, and for the last fourteen years It has been the greatest
Joy to ourselves and our friends In India. It was with us some years
In Bombay (a warm, moist climate), and then came with us here to a
very hot summer climate (114 deg. In the shade), and in the winter one
below freezing.', ' -' {;,
We have now been transferred to Madras, and I am here attend
ing to tho dispatch of our properties. The first article to be packed .
and attended to was my cherished piano, and, I thought you would be
', Interested in this picture of the first stage in the long Journey to
Madras (1500 miles), as it left our bungalow in the charge of an ele
phant. . :^yyy:-
For musical and mechanical perfection I think the Steinway is un
equalod, and when my soldier husband has > completed his service we
mean to take our treasure home to Kngland with us. .It will emergo
as good as new after a short spell In the hands of your London branch,
and we shall both be glad to keep our old friend, as the soundboard
- and other Important parts are quite perfect in spite of climatic changes
and wanderings. Believe' me.
Yours very truly,
(Wife of Colonel Stanley Smith, R. A., British Service.)

George Harris Donohue Meets Old
Friends and Discovers We Have
1800 Manufacturers In This
Los Angeles ohce morel Oh, joy!
Ever since leaving this town a couple
of years ago I have been the Busiest
Izzy imaginable trying to figure out
how I would ever be able to cover tho
remarkable distance with dignity and
dining car equipment, but despite all
reports to the contrary the feat has
been accomplished, and now, that I am
actually here it will be up to me to
form myself into a sort of educational
institution for the benefit of those in
this town who are not altogether sure
whether Los Angeles is a real city or
not. .
This idea struck me forcibly while
sitting in the rotunda of Hotel Angelus
yesterday afternoon when Harry Loo
mis, proprietor of that well known hos
telry, buttonholed me with the follow
ing bit of wisdom, which, if taken at
all seriously, might be good food for
consideration by the host now In pos
session of this beautiful city.
"You can bet your last rock bottom
dollar, Donohue," said Mr. Loomls as
he doled me out a long black perfecto,
"that in less than ten years Los An
geles will be one of the greatest cities
in this country. It will be the real
Paris of America, and right here today
you can readily detect the advance ear
marks of a higher degree of cultiva
tion than is apparent. Individually in
any other city on the Pacific coast.
Mr. Loomls Is undoubtedly a real
town booster, but his subsequent, de
duction? on future prosperity and the
remarkable arguments he advanced as
a substantial groundwork for the points
covered claimed my open-eyed atten
tion, 'as like' the thousands of other
newcomers to Los Angeles I had but
little idea of the vast possibilities of
this city as viewed from the many
sided'arguments of Mr. Loomls.
"Why, away back, twenty • years
ago," continued Loomis, "I was down
in San Diego, and at that time every
body was talking about the wonderful
era of prosperity which was sure to
overtake this section of the country. I
remained there until about everybody
went broke, and then, like many; oth
ers I came here, and today I'm still
wondering why I left the old town, as
now it is a moral certainty that every
man who stuck there and held on to
his property can now count his money
in the much coveted six figures.
"People who come here and remain
but a few days wonder how it is that
there are always so many people on
our principal business thoroughfares.
The answer is seven-eighths of
our settlers who come here with the In
tention of remaining but a short time
become enamored of the climate, buy
themselves a beautiful sunny home,
and the next thing you know you see
their names In the city directory, and
you discover they have transferred
their wealth to the caro of our local
banking Institutions. '
"That's what's going to make Los
Angeles great. The class of people who
are now among us represent the wealth
of the country. They are lovers of
music, art and the higher educational
attainments. It will only be a question
of a short time before we have among
us some of the greatest instructors in
nil branches of art. as they will be
attracted by the great field which is
here for them. *:•-■•,'•'■''•
"As it stands today, we have already
produced more 'champions' than any
other section of the country. Look at
the little girl we sent from down the
country a short time ago to New York.
Didn't she take every prize held up In
the physical culture contest at Madi
son Square garden? Well, I guess she
did; and besides, haven't we the great
est pugilists and the most beautiful
women to be found any place on earth?
All you have to do, sonny, when you
come to this town is to keep your eyes
open, and before you know it you will
discover lots of things you may not
think we have tabulated on our local
calendar." •
As a matter of fact, before talking
with Mr. Loomis I made the rather
novel discovery that right here in sun
ny Los Angeles there are more than
eighteen hundred manufacturing con
cerns whose annual output portends a
remarkable factor in the bank clear
ings of this city.
Another funny thing which I discov
ered at the Angelus is the fact that
in back of the desk can be found a liv
ing replica of Governor Hughes of
New York In the person of Nat S. Mul
lan, who for years was the able enter
tainer of the Palace hotel In San Fran
cisco. With Mr. Mullan is Julius A.
Buckler, who gained fame during the
recent national political campaign as
the youthful prototype of Col. William
Jennings Bryan. Mr. Buckler is the
(•lover citizen who can spell eucalyptus
without consulting his hotel red book.
Since my arrival here I have encoun
tered several thousand people who for
some reason or other imagine I am
about to swing back into the gloom and
mysteries of the far-famed Raffles—
but take it from me, THAT is one feat
ure of my exciting career which I trust
is shoved away far back into the grave
yard of oblivion. :■ ■ -
Since leaving here I have been "Raf
fling" continuously, and as It stands
now I'm getting so that I am actually
afraid to go home in the daylight.
In a day or so, after I get my proper ■
bearings restored, I will make an effort I
to get among your real well known and I
capable citizens and therewith dally
along in the good old fashioned style.
Everybody' likes to be talked to, and
if you have the time and feel happy,
just pause a moment and consider the
great possibilities which may be yours
should you happen to stop and say
"How d' y' do" ,to me.
Incidentally, so that you will remem
ber details all right, I might suggest
that the gifted W. X Carruthers, "who
was here with me two years ago, in
now a vision of the past—he couldn't
get : car fare ■to get* back. Instead of
W. K. C. I have inveigled Walter S.
Kellar, a solemn looking youth, to join
me in the campaign which I am about
to spread before you.
Should you ; meet "Little Walter"
treat him kindly and remember that
never before has he treaded either tho
heated sands or A the sacred soil of
Southern California;
In a day or so we will all get re
acquainted. In the meantime watch
this column, as there is never any tell
ing when you may discover your own
gifted personality shining through the
limelight of unexpected publicity.' V
Incidentally I wonder what has be
come of my old trailer, Conductor No.
