The little sport of his class and pit fiend at all musical comedies the only bad thing that can be said about him is that he still deserves knee breeches and the only good thing, that he is hell on all Cadillac-30's.

"A lover of queens, tarts, damsels, fair maidens and fluvias."

-The Kentuckian, 1910
