Inscription and Marks

Typed on label taped to back of photographic print: ''One more of my Oriental impressions is called the Cadman Nautch. The music was written especially for me by the late Carles Wakefield Cadman. It was used on my early programs and has been an active number (other numbers having been dropped along the way) till yesterday practically speeking when I offered in on the Arlene Francis show. Here are two studies, one taken with a bit of publicity material at Jacobs Pillow in early September 1955 the other photographed by Lindquist. and the larger one taken right after the Television by Marcus Blechman.''
