Lord Lytton a celebrated play a Richelieu a written for Macready one of Edgland a celebrated tragedian was produced at the matinee and there can no question As to its Success Booth of course enacted the title role and presented an accurate portrait of the great Cardinal Quot As he lived a and in that portrait he a held the Mirror up to everything was so natural that the actor was absolutely lost in the character in Booths Richelieu you see an Quot aged Many not bowed by age but by care a politician keen and Dinning having the heart and nerve to act his part in his country a history. Every scene showed Ariot he phase of the great cardinals character making a striking picture As a whole but one thing was peculiarly Manifest that is that Booth read his lines with Fidelity making no appeals for the Polh applause by rant Ami undue emphasis.
