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

return there in a year's time.

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.
