March 31 Thursday – Adah Menken “suddenly left Virginia without saying goodbye to anybody,
and returned to San Francisco.” Of course, she had $36,000 worth of comfort plus gifts of stock
certificates bearing a naked lady on a galloping stallion, which she sold a year later for $50,000
[Fatout, MT in VC 167]. She died in 1868 at age 33.
