The Friends of Flagg #3


John Drew

" 'Uncle John' Drew was a stage institution of his day; but he said he felt the height of success was having a five cent cigar named for him. His ability, his humor, his charm, urbanity, and sartorical perfection made him tops. I used to twit him about falling asleep when he was sitting for his portrait. This he indignantly denied, saying, 'And you, you gave me a purple eyebrow!' "

The word "sartorical" is Flagg's, and given the image, it fits perfectly.
