Remembering you, Jim, on this Anniversary of your birth !!! In an era when men of circumstances, after changing into evening dress, glittered ~ you became dazzling! Diamonds were nothing to be embarassed about ~ as you said, "Those that have them, wear them!" Your love of fine food was legendary and your accomplishments at such famous 'Lobster Palaces' as Sherry's, Delmonico's, Bustanoby's and Rector's were of epic dimensions! Less known were your many and varied philanthropies, as well as your loyalty and devotion to scores of friends. God certainly blessed you Jim. May He keep you safe in His care!

Remembering you, Jim, and the time you and Lillian Russell bet to see who could eat the most, one evening, at Bustanoby's restaurant in New York. The prize, if she won, would be a huge diamond ring ! Lillian took you up on your wager, Jim . . . she slipped out to the ladies' room and came out with a heavy bundle under her arm, wrapped up in a table cloth. The mysterious package was given into Bustanoby's own hands. "Keep this for me," Lillian said, "but don't look." Sweeping into the dining room again, she beat Jim 'fair and square.' One need hardly add that the bundle, which had required a tablecloth for concealment, was Lilian's corset !!!
