"The public has no idea of the ex
periences we have on the road ludicrous
experiences at that with people anxious
to make the stage a profession. Only
seeing one side of life before the foot
lights, they become stage struck and
anxious to become identified with it. We
not onlv neet such people face to face
and henr from their own lips the stcry of
their infatuation, but we receive letters
from them. Here, for instance, is a sam
ple. I have jast opened it and yoa m7
read it if you like." The speaker was
William Po .lle. Jr.. manager of the Eunice
Goodrich company, now playing at Har
per's theatre, and the conversation oc
curred between acts in the lobby of the
theatre tbe other evening. The press
man solicited the use of the letter, and
here it is, the name of the stage-struck
young man, who gives bis age as 20 years

Place, Chicago. 111. Dear Sir: Will you
kindly let me have your attention to my
letter written under this date. Ever since
your stage 6how was here I have been
tl.inkine of it especially the play
"The Fisherman's Daughter." Every
night during your week's engagement
here I witnessed every one of the
plajs. li spite of being a m He I always
witness every stage play for I was oncp
an actor, when I was nine years of age. I
was told then that it would be very easy
for any one to instruct me to play on the
stage. For a number of years I was
hundreds of times made to do insny dif
ferent kinds of laughable and interesting
things and I plainly understood panto
mines on the chapel platforms. I am
i:sed to changing my countenance and
dif fuifes, and I have tbe greatest desire
of joining your splendid show. As I
have no home in the world, nor parent0,
1 can jiiu a stage show without offending
my poor relatives. I was always called
a "dancing clown," for 1 used to bother
dancers by my witty, silly and laughable
actions. I believe that if a mute joins a
stage show the show would be a great
success for the audiences would be sur
rised to see a mute in a show.
Teas the show wiil be a great attrac
!'rn- I have no fear nor am I bashful to
do silly actions on a Blase. I am a travel
er from one place to another place; from
Pennsylvania to Isebka. If you let
ine j.nn your show I can and will strive
my might to do with my best on the stage
to amuse the audience. I arc willing to
receive but a small salary, but if you in
tend to let we loin your show please first
ask your actors and actresses if they don't
wnnt a mute to play on the stages with
tnem. After letting me join your show I
would like to have you send me a suit of
a tramper, so I can walk from here to
Cbicsg.) so that a great audience would
be at your theatre or one ot the theatres
it Cbicsgo when I arrive there, but if you
fesr that I would take the suit sent by
yon and not ga to Chicago, you cn send
it to tie manager of the opera house
here, for there is no good walking suits
here. ( Hoping to hear from you as soon
as pfiss.ble. I will send you one of my
piiot'igrtphs if you want.
