HOME AGAIN . [Newspaper Article] — Player — 15 December 1911
HOME AGAIN . J . A . Murphy and Eloise Willard , after a series of artistic triumphs in England , have returned to this country , arriving in New York , this week , on the S . S . Laurentic . Although they have not published any glowing notices of their success on the other side it is a well-known fact that they have been one of the real vaudeville hits in England . They have been offered a long series of engagements in Great Britain but have put off all these dates until August of next year , wanting to spend a little time in their native land . The innate drollery of Mr . Murphy and the charming stage presence of Miss Willard , combined with her delightful singing , have made such a strong impression on the audiences on the other side that their absence will be a source of regret to all theatergoers . Adam Sourguy Murphy and his talented wife will always be welcome visitors to the other side of the pond and will never want for bookings over there .
