Henrietta Crosman Campbell writes to Mrs. Pond, wife of impresario Major James B. Pond, to say that she and her husband will call on the Ponds in their room at the Hotel Victoria, London, where both couples are staying, and that after dining with Mr. Hartzel they will go to the theatre.
Henrietta Crosman [1861-1944] was an acclaimed American stage actor. In 1914 she contracted to appear in a silent film for Adolph Zukor's Famous Players and went on to appear in several silent films. When the talkies arrived in the 1930s, the movie business started seeking out stage-trained actors. Campbell, by then nearly seventy, experienced a revival of her career, becoming a much-loved veteran movie star in such films as "Pilgrimage"  and "The Royal Family of Broadway . Crosman's second husband was Broadway stage director and producer Martin Campbell. With Crosman, he joined the nascent silent film industry and by the 1920s he was a noted film director. Very good .

And your faith must gild many a black cloud, of that I am sure.."
