Saturday 25 Another beautiful day. Audrea + her mother went for the violin lesson + the teacher praised Audrea highly. She says, she _ Audrea undoubtedly has talent + that if she will only work faithfully she will make a violinist. I trust she may. I wish I could keep a more unbroken record but I cannot get the time to write. Deverd came in the evening – was here to dinner wanted Clarence to help him with his car + stayed untill late. Finished the book I was reading aloud to Audrea.
NOTES + EXPLANATIONS
On this day in history: June 25, 1927 (Saturday)
- Léon Daudet, the jailed French monarchist leader and editor of L’Action française, strolled out of La Santé Prison after the warden was tricked by a phone call. Shortly after noon, prison governor Haute took the call and was told, “This is the Minister of the Interior speaking. You are to release Leon Daudet immediately… the President of the Republic has reprieved him.” Haute called the Ministry for confirmation and was answered by another plotter, who claimed to be the Minister’s secretary. Released also were L’Action francaise manager Joseph Delest, and French Communist Party leader Pierre Semard, who were all personally escorted out the front gate by Haute. Daudet went into exile in Belgium until he was pardoned in 1929.
- The drama film The Way of All Flesh starring Emil Jannings premiered in New York City.
