Trav’lin a Little Too Light

Billie at Carnegie Hall, mid-1940s. Did she or didn't she?

I am just back from Ocracoke Island, North Carolina, which boasts one of America’s best beaches and is accessible only by ferry. The morning after reaching the village, I realized that I had forgotten my unmentionables. I had no choice but to follow Billie’s example. I did without.

I hear that nothing—not even undergarments—came between Lady and her gowns onstage.
