Excerpt from The Easiest Way: A Play in Four Acts

Laura Murdock, twenty-five years of age, is a type that is not uncommon to the theatrical life in New York, and which has grown in importance in relation to the profession since the business of giving public entertainments has been so utterly reduced to a commercial basis.

At an early age she came from Australia and settled in San Francisco. She was gifted with considerable beauty and an aptitude for theatrical accomplishment that soon raised her in a position of more or less importance in a local stock company playing in that city.

A woman of intense superficial emotions; her imagination is without any enduring depths, but for the passing time she can place herself in an attitude of great affection and devotion. Sensually, the woman had marked characteristics, and with the flattery that surrounded her she soon became a favorite in the select circles who made such places as "The Poodle Dog" and" Zincand's" famous.

In the matter of general dissipation she was always careful not in any way to indulge in excesses which would jeopardize her physical attractiveness, or for one moment diminish her sense of keen worldly calculation.

In time she married. It was, of course, a failure. Her vacillating nature was such that she could not be absolutely true to the man to whom she had given her life, and after several bitter experiences, she had the horror of seeing him kill himself in front of her. There was a momentary spasm of grief, a tidal wave of remorse, and then peculiar recuperation of spirits, beauty and attractiveness that so marks this type of woman. She was deceived by other men in many various ways, and finally came to that stage of life that is known in theatrical circles as being "wised up."
