I have a copy of 30 Years Of billiards by Hoppe, I started looking thru it after seeing this thread and I had remembered that Willie and his brother Frank had played exhibitions together when they were only 7 and 9 years old.
I had forgotten though , that when Frank decided to quit touring in 1900 Willies mother learned how to play and went on tour with him playing and doing exhibitions for a while.
According to Willie she actually learned quickly and ran 38 once.
