Stan letter


My friend Nico Cartenstadt is Grand Sheik of the Bogus Bandits tent of Belgium and an L&H historian and author.  He sent me a copy of his March tent newsletter, Bandits' Bulletin (written in Dutch), which included a very interesting letter written by one "Stan. Jefferson" dated Feb. 28, 1913.  It was recently auctioned off in the UK and discusses Stan's tour in America at that time.  I have translated Nico's comments into English and reproduced the actual letter as well as a transcript which is easier to read.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Fraternally yours,
