From being dime-museum Harry, he became a wealthy man. I mean, he was making a lot of money. And he started spending it. When he got back to the states, he bought a beautiful house in what is now Harlem. It had ten rooms, a brownstone. He installed beautiful tile bathroom. He bought a farm for himself in Stamford, Connecticut, where he grew fruit and everything. He started buying very nice clothing. He made sure that his mother was very well dressed. He entertained very lavishly. Bess liked to cook. Their guest book is still there, and they seem to have had like a dinner party practically every night, inviting all local magicians and friends to, you know, bigbig bashes.
