Flowers left for James Brady
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 !!!
