Excerpt from History of the Providence Stage, 1762-1891 The author has taken such an interest in theatrical matters, that for many years he has kept almost a complete record of plays and players in Providence. He has often been asked to write a history of the Providence stage, but has not found time to devote to such a work until recently. In 1868, Mr. Charles Blake, Clerk of the Supreme Court, published such a history, bringing the record up to the latter part of 1859. Obtaining the consent of Mr. Blake to embody his history in this work, the writer has added several sketches of prominent stars to the former, and has continued the record up to the present year. Mr. Blake's work made the latter a comparatively easy task, although a search of old files of newspapers for more than thirty years was necessary to obtain criticisms, accounts of prominent events, etc. The writer is greatly indebted to Brown's History of the American Stage, Phelps's Players of a Century, and that excellent work recently published in Philadelphia by Gebbie & Co., entitled Stage and its Stars, Past and Present, for various matters of interest, together with sketches, etc., of prominent stars.
