CORRECTING AN ERROR [Newspaper Article] — Player — 9 February 1912
CORRECTING AN ERROR Through an unfortunate mistake that THE PLAYER made in its issue of Jan . 19 , an injustice has been done to _ a young lady by the name of Lillian Graham . In a dispatch from Chicago , dated Jan . IS , on page 8 of that issue of THE PLAYER , reference was made to Lillian Graham appearing in The Kiss Waltz and . the young lady is referred to as Lillian Graham who some time ago shot Mr . Stokes in the leg in New York as succeeding Adele Rowland . This young lady , who takes the part in The Kiss Waltz , it seems , is not the Lillian Graham who shot Mr . Stokes and is in no way related to or connected with the Lillian Graham of shooting fame . No one can regret more than this paper the occurrence of this mistake and we hasten to make amends . We sincerely trust that Miss Graham will suffer no inconvenience by reason of our mistake , growing out of the unfortunate coincidence- of similarity of names .
