Coming from a long-haired man, one would expect the curse to have almost immediate effect, but as yet the Oregonian editor is evidentially losing no flesh.” [MOA] [MCK]

Campbell, Bartley. My Partner. A play first produced at the Union Square Theatre, New York on Sept. 16, 1879, and later at the Olympic Theatre in London, April 10-May 8, 1884. [I saw the play at a dinner theater and also delivered as a farce by the Western Literature Association (WLA) Reader’s Theatre in Estes Park, Colorado, October 3, 1991 and there was not a line, scene, or situation that couldn’t have been found somewhere in Joaquin Miller’s works. Some reviews suggest Campbell took suggestions from the works of Bret Harte and Joaquin Miller. A German version with the title, Mein Kumpan, was staged in Berlin in 1883. A moving picture version was filmed in 1909.] [Miller knew Frank Campbell, Bartley’s brother in Siskiyou Co. in 1854.] [MGK]
