Turned they away from every part of the house opening performance tell Dutton and all Omaha people say show can run here five weeks good luck [1]

W. F. Cody

Note 1: Cody was in Omaha exhibiting his motion picture The Indian Wars for a week-long run. According to the Omaha World-Herald on March 17, 1914, the theater had been filled to capacity for both showings the previous day. "Dutton" may refer to either Samuel F. Dutton (born c. 1869), who was then the proprietor of the Albany Hotel in Denver, or his younger brother Frank R. Dutton, who helped manage the hotel. The Dutton brothers were pallbearers at Cody's funeral in 1917. [back]
