A prosperous young Wall Street broker met, fell in love with and was frequently seen escorting about town a rising actress of gentility and dignity. He wanted to marry her, but being a cautious man he decided that before proposing marriage he should have a private investigation agency check her background and present activities. After all, he reminded himself, I have both a growing fortune and my reputation to protect against a marital misadventure. The young man requested that the agency was not to reveal his identity to the investigator requesting a report on the actress. In due time the investigator’s report came back.

The report concluded, “The only shadow is that she is often seen around town in the company of a young broker of dubious business practices and principles.”
