Not illustrated. 1922 Excerpt: ... MADAME PEPITA COMEDY IN THREE ACTS TEATRO DE LA COMEDIA, MADRID 1913 TO RICARDO LEON CHARACTERS Madame Pepita, aged 38. Catalina, aged 17. Galatea, aged 25 Carmen, aged 28. Cristina, aged 16. A Sewing Girl, aged 20. Don Guillermo, aged 40. Alberto, aged 22. Don Luis, aged 55. Augusto, aged 25. Andres, aged 30.

In the centre and at the right, small tables strewn with fashion magazines, colored plates of French and Viennese models and samples of materials such as wholesale houses supply to dressmakers. A large three panelled mirror, in front of a pier glass reaching to the floor, points to the fact that, on busy days, the salon is pressed into service as a fitting room also. One or two smart hats hang about on high stands; almost in the centre of the stage is a dress-form, on which is draped an elaborate evening gown. At the rise of the curtain, Carmen, one of Madame Pepita's fitters, is kneeling before the form, pinning a design of flowers and foliage on the gown.

Cristina stands near by, handing her pins from a small box, besides flowers and buds from a large carton which is placed on a chair. Carmen, a smart looking young person of the type employed in the better dressmaking establishments of Madrid, wears a black frock set off with a small white apron. Her shoes are neat and her hair and general appearance faultlessly correct. Cristina, an apprentice, still in short skirts, is wellgroomed and smart. Both gi...
