Ben Greet Players. A company of thirteen players, perstonally trained and coached by Ben Greet, are to ap
pear here- , -
Mr. Greet is considered today one of the greatest living authorities on the English drama and is world
famous for his remarkable productions of Shakespearean plays and old English comedies. He has been connected
with the stage for thirty years and has taught many actors, perhaps more than any other man living today.
For twenty years Mr. Greet has been prominent in England for performances In which his splendid companies
bive acted each year in London, Cambridge, Stratford on Avon and other places in "Shakespeare's England." r
1 Mr. Greet became well known in America several years ago through his presentation of the morality play "Every
man" under the management of Charles Frohman. This was the first time a play was presented in America by a
professional company in the Elizabethan manner. This was later followed by a production of Shakespearean plays
and classical comedlts.
The company of thirteen Ben Greet Players who are to appear on the Chautauqua, pro-rram here is the same com

Fellow-Citizens of Richmond
Owing to a severe illness of
several days duration and which,
from present indications, will be
prolonged for many days more, I
have been and will be unable to
discharge my duties as policeman
of your city. I am, as you aware,
also a candidate for Chief ; of
Police of the city of Richmond,
at the Democratic primary, Aug
ust 2. -
Now, you can readily see I am
greatly handicapped and will be
unable to make an active cam
paign for said office. When I
entered the race for Chief of Po
lice and up to some ten days ago,
I was in fine fettle, and the
hearty support accorded me by
the voters has been most gratify
ing. While the unseen hand of
Fate has taken a thrust at me,
yet I take this method of inform
ing my friends that I am in this
race until the finish and hope to
win. I trust that my friends,
who in the past have tendered
me their loyal support and influ
encewill continue their activities
in my behalf from now until the
polls close on election day. It
will be impossible for me to give
my race the personal attention I
had hoped, for at least several
days to come, owing to my illness;
therefore I am necessarily forced
to take this method of appealing
to the loyalty of my numerous
friends and ask them to make
every honest endeavor to keep up
the splendid interest . already
engendered in my candidacy for
Chief of Police.
I doubly assure you from the
depths of my heart, my fellow
citizens, that any support given
me in furtherance of my race
will be most highly appreciated,
and I will hold you, each and all,
in grateful remembrance as my
sincere friends. Thanking you
for past favors, and again assur
ing every -one of my high appre
ciation of any kindness and
courtesy shown me in the future,
I beg to remain,
Yours respectfully,
Jesse Dykes.
