The extraordinary fact about these- which plays into my generalisation a little way back- was that, for all the connection of such occasions with the great interest of the theatre at large, there was scarce an impression of the stage wrung from current opportunity that didn't somehow underscore itself with the special Boston emphasis; and this in spite of the fact that plays and performers in those days were but a shade less raggedly itinerant over the land than they are now.- "Notes of a Son and Brother", Henry James.
