      From an email from Madelyn Faustina Murray:
      "My mother and my father [Lillian Fauria and Leonard Faustina] both used to work for Beansie in New Orleans. (They cryptically called it "the syndicate"; "making book" and things like that.) Some of the businesses I'm aware of that Beansie owned or controlled were the lottery in certain wards, plus night clubs with betting on "Race Fights", and 20+ taxi cabs with Creole drivers who could pick up fares in any part of town. Those are the only operations I'm certain about, there were probably others.
      "My grandfather [Virgil Michel Fauria] ... also worked for Beansie. My grandfather took care of investments they made in 2nd mortgages on homes owned by New Orleans folks who couldn't get mortgages from banks. My mother still has one of the books with the names and addreses of the people who stopped in to make their monthly payments.
      "They also made loans to people who owned businesses. For example, Fred Fauria [Frederick Cecil Fauria (1904-1956)], a relative, borrowed money to start a bakery. He paid it back.
      "Beansie also invested in the careers of Jazz musicians, to help them start bands and make records." [5, 9]
