"I made my d├ębut as a chorus girl or stage Amazon last week. It was my first appearance on any stage and came about through reading among THE WORLD advertisements one that called for 100 girls for a spectacular pantomine, so I found myself one afternoon at the stage door of the Academy of Music."

Bly writes about her turn on the stage as a member of the dancing chorus line for "The Amazon March."
