"Did you see that in the Herald this morning about Nat Goodwin, Harris?"
"No," said the person addressed. "What was it?"
"Made quite a curtain address at Hooley's last night. Better look it up."

--From Chapter XXVI of Sister Carrie

"Let's go to the matinée this afternoon," said Mrs. Vance, who had stepped across into Carrie's flat one morning . . . .
"All right," said Carrie. . . . "What shall we see?"
"Oh, I do want to see Nat Goodwin," said Mrs. Vance. "I do think he is the jolliest actor. The papers say this is such a good play."

--From Chapter XXXI of Sister Carrie
