Notes
"Houdini's Death Defying Mystery" Cachet Envelope

From the envelope: Harry Houdini (1874-1926) Harry Houdini is the most famous name in the history of magic. Born Ehrich Weiss in Budapest, Hungary, he became a genius in the art of escape. A fantastic showman, he traveled throughout Europe with a challenge escape act that featured extreme physical prowess. Returning to America he became so famous that even today he is known as one of the world's greatest magicians. He died on Halloween, which has since become National Magic Day.
