Publication Concord Times
Description People didn't make movies, left without paying hotel manager. "Messrs. Melrose and Wilcox, the men who came here Wednesday night and spent Thursday here, representing themselves to be representatives of the Pathe Moving Picture house, have gone. They left very suddenly and unceremoniously last night without getting any pictures of Concord and her industries, etc., etc., as they said they were going to get. They also left without thanking the St. Cloud Hotel for boarding and lodging them for a day and night, not to mention paying for the same. Just where they have gone is a mystery and will likely remain a mystery unless their creditors here succeed in unraveling it."
