She later joined the staff of the New York "Journal" (1901), the Wheeler Syndicate (1917), Ledger Syndicate (1923) and Bell Syndicate (1933), becoming the first nationally syndicated "advice to the lovelorn" columnist. Toned. Affixed to larger sheet along with a magazine photo. Three holes punched in left margin. Article affixed to verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
