Status Deceased

Nick Bartleby was a character from "Beautiful Little Fool". He and his younger sister Muriel Bartleby are old Philadelphia money.

Nick was in an on again/off again relationship with Carmela LeFleur. This ended when he became infatuated with Violet Polley and got her pregnant.

The Bartlebys lost their fortune during the Stock Market crash and Nick wouldn't marry Violet nor take in their daughter Rose Polley despite still being well-off enough to do so. He died sometime after in a hunting accident.

In 2006, Nick's spirit appears to Muriel, watching on in disapproval while she is adding the names of Violet and her descendants into the family tree.
