Olga Nethersole at Daly’s, New York, March 1908
Olga Nethersole’s final week at Daly’s was devoted to repetitions of plays in which she had appeared in seasons past. In all of them she was heretofore been popular, and by her performances last week she lost none of that popularity. The members of her supporting company also appeared to better advantage than in the earlier offerings of her local engagements. Carmen was presented on Monday night, Sapho on Tuesday, Magda on Wednesday, Camille on Thursday, and The Second Mrs. Tanqueray on Friday. Sapho was repeated on Saturday afternoon and evening.’

‘Anna Held says the “London suffragettes make her so nervous when they go about slapping men. Mais certainement! The dear creatures were made to lean on – not to slap.”
