About this Item

This American actor was one half of a celebrated comedy team (with William H. Crane) that toured between 1877 and 1889. AQS, 1p, 6" X 2", n.p., 1881. Near fine. In Robson's handsome script, in bold brown ink, he pens: "'Shall we not laugh, my masters?' / -- Shakespeare. / Affirmatively answered by / Yours Very Truly / Stuart Robson / 1881." Appropriate quotation from a comedic actor -- unfortunately, Shakespeare never wrote any such line. Likely Robson is badly misquoting a line from "The Merchant of Venice" (Act III, Scene I): "If you prick us, do we not bleed? if you tickle us, do we not laugh? if you poison us, do we not die? and if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?".
