The Motion Picture News, September 9, 1911:
“The above cut was taken from a postal card on the reverse side of which was the following communication:
American Film Mfg. Co., Chicago, Ill
Gentlemen;–This is what I do with your great Western features, two of which I receive weekly–Mondays and Thursdays first run. They certainly get the money for me. On ‘American’ days we average 2,000 people daily. The picture, as depicted above, is our lobby display of your film entitled ‘The Parting of the Trails.’ The reception accorded it was simply wonderful.
R. A. Healy”
