September 7, 1934

Jennie Goldstein has returned from South America. Full of enthusiasm, a cheerful enthusiast. With everything and everyone she has seen and experienced in distant lands, she has much, much to learn. And she also has a lot to show. The actors, for example, with whom she played in Argentina, presented her in her evening of honor with a silver heart, which is much larger even than the largest star. And the manager of her theatre there, an Italian who knows Yiddish, gave her a rare fountain pen of gold, set with diamonds, which had remained an inheritance from his grandfather. Today she has to show the rave reviews and the many articles with songs of praise. In short, Jennie Goldstein is highly satisfied with her trip, which lasted barely six months ...

The main greeting that Miss Goldstein brings from Argentina, as well as from Brazil and Uruguay, is that Jews there love theatre and support every artist who comes there as a guest.

In Buenos Aires, Argentina, there is found three Yiddish theatres in which three Yiddish troupes play, and they all, reports the actress, are successful. There one now finds Ludwig Satz, Menasha Skulnik and Pesach'ke Burstein, and they all are big hits with the audience.


Incidentally, Mrs. Goldstein wrote by herself a play with the name, "Madame Pagliacci," according to her, and the play has been played many times in South America.

In short, she is so enthusiastic and so satisfied with her tour in South America, that she plans to return there in a year's time.

She played in Buenos Aires, in Montevideo, in San Paolo and Rio de Janeiro. And as she said, if only she could play and play there, but she longed for home. She left everything behind and came home early. But it seems that she will not stay here for a long time. In a week or two she will most likely head to Warsaw, where she will perform at the Yiddish theatre. Or, she says, she will appear in a play on Broadway. But even this is not definite. She has a lot of plans. At present she does not know which of them will be realized.
