Behind the Scenes with Edwin Booth

By Katherine Molony Goodale | Go to book overview

CHAPTER XLII
CONCLUSION

THE years rolled by. In moments when the spirit of my girlhood seized me, I loved to give imagination reign and pretend I was rushing to The Players to be greeted by Mr. Booth and pour out my great news that I had heeded his hope for me -- and that I had married a man after his own heart. It has been easy to conjure up that alive face with its glowing eyes and watch it become whimsical in its amusement. For he was sure to say: 'So, you did not forget my warning -- you did remember me in your great moment -- and by now you know how right I was to insist upon the good man.'

No, nothing concerning Mr. Booth was forgotten. The memories of the 'David Garrick' chats and the outings were a source of delight to the man I married, who had known and loved the great genius of the theatre before I was born. My husband's Pipery became a shrine for Booth mementoes. Mr. Goodale it was who first urged me to fix on paper my memories of these wonderful days -- 'for our increasing pleasure as shadows lengthen.'

Then he, too, withdrew from human vision, and of his friend G. P. G., Mr. George Broadhurst wrote in that hour:

'His voice was gentle, his smile was sweet,
His heart was strong.
If all those he helped should chance to meet,
God! What a throng!'
