Serial from The Evening Mail (New York)
This serialization of The Prince and Betty appeared weekly in the Saturday magazine section of the New York Evening Mail. Throughout, the author’s name is misspelled as “Pelhan G. Wodehouse.”
It follows closely (but not precisely in such details as paragraph and section formatting, capitalization, italics, and the like) the American version of the story as published by W. J. Watt, New York, in February 1912. See the notes to the Ainslee’s magazine version for a brief rundown of the various forms in which this story appeared.
Our source is from dark and somewhat damaged microfilm, so the illustrations accompanying the episodes are not as well-reproduced as we could wish, and in a few cases illegible words in the text have been filled in from the Watt hardcover edition. Thanks to AK for scans and transcriptions and to Ian Michaud for proofreading.
The initial episode was featured on the cover of the magazine section; see image below.
