9780405087554: Dramatic Life As I Found It

In undertaking and performing the work of writing this book, I have been urged by three leading motives, which will, I think, excuse me in the minds of my readers for obtruding myself upon their notice. First: The early history of so important a portion of the literature of our country as the Drama should not be lost in the obscurity of by-gone years, especially that portion of it which has made such unprecedented advancement toward perfection as may be found at the present day in the great Valley of the Mississippi, As this history should be written, and no one has hitherto published such a record, the writer of these lines has undertaken the task, and will leave behind him a true account of the early Drama of the West and South. This history, founded on a personal knowledge of, and intimate connection with, the subject-matter for sixty-five years, the writer hopes some reliable author may take up and carry forward to a successor ;and that in this way, in the course of time, there may be obtained an entire and complete history of the Drama of the United States of North A merica. A second reason, and one prompting the writer to the work, was the desire to fulfil a promise made, through a mutual friend, to William Dunlap, Esq., author of the History of the American Theatre, published in 1832, that should he continue any considerable length of time among the theatres of the West and South, he would leave behind him some account of them. Third: This book has been written that I may make a statement of facts in a representation made of me by my partner of eighteen years, a short time previous to his death, in a book published by him, wherein he charges me with duplicity in a transaction that took place a year before he and I became partners in theatrical management.
