San Antonio Daily Light (Newspaper) - July 11, 1891, San Antonio, TexasSaturday. July 11. Liln Colin s assassination. The doorkeeper at Ford s lieu ice tells some stories of Llie no Jijita. Ijohn r. I Kate Field s Washington forty two years Bajjo i was Call boy to the elder Booth you to Ruy theatrical experience extends Over a Good loner time. For most of there years i have seen the theatre from the door Way and or nearly thirty of them i have take the tickets of the washing ton theatre going Public. I know tue faces i. The in a of most of the people in town wlm lire fond of the play and have had the pleasure of Rui milling role brisies to an even Iuar 01 recreation from the cares of state. At this season however the celebrities Aro very sparse indeed. Among the prominent men in the last Coli Arresa came often to the theatre were or. Breckey Ririe of Kentucky or. Carlisle Hurt or. Kus Tib. President Carribou jokes an evening Here Ami is a greater theater Poer president since Arthur. Hari Lou Artilur Hurt Lincoln Muke up the recent presidential patrons of the drama. Dot Ween Lincoln s time Sud Arthur s no president showed very much for the. Theater. I was tending the door at Ford h theater the night that Lincoln was slant. The impression it made upon my mind is still so vivid that i Don t like to talk about it but fur All that there was nothing of Trie horrible scene often described. The soldiers who were almost immediately upon the spot did not charge upon Che crowd with fixed bayonets As is sometimes erroneously stated. There was very great difficulty in making the people leave the House. Hardly two minutes after the shot was fired the audience seemed to flow Over into the orchestra and on the stage. This state of things lasted fur some time until at the Reque Srof or. Harry Ford i went out to the sidewalk and spoke to bar. Wallach Lorman years mayor of the Olty. Tie Etique in and going a far As he could Down our of the aisles addressed the crowd and asked them to leave. He was Well known and the people obeyed with tolerable promptness and that la the the throng was really dispersed when they were finally gone i locked the doors a id quilted the building. All this of course is More or less widely Guowu to the Public. What is less familiar is history it the old House. A Provo to guard was put in charge and the soldiers made sad Tuvou with the appearance of the Thetro. To had for instance a pretty Little waiting parlor for ladies Lier e the guard cooked and ate their rations until floor and furniture were covered with grease. They damaged the boxes too a great Deal annual together left the place i a sorry condition. Or. Ford obtained Permis Sion to open again on the Pothof july. All Over the City. The Provost guar i not ordered out until the last Oumi ionic Ana after that at tempted to pot things in order As Best we could. The theatre was cleaned and i bought a Roll of Allyl draped the Box which president Lin Coln had coupled. We were Busy All Day on the 10th, and i hut ried Home late to dross for the even ing s business. A Little before time for the performance i came Back and found a Row of soldiers on the Steps. Or. Ford came up and told me that lie had been summoned to appear at the War department and that there could be no performance that even ing he went to see Secretary Stan ton. The building was bought by the government for and has not been used for theatrical purposes since. .1 kept As mementos Good sized scraps of the Wall paper and Box curtains of the old theater but these pieces have grown smaller and smaller until All i have left Are a few Little bits which i have had photographed. I have Cut off a Little for first one Friend and then another until i have had to put the remaining pieces under a Glass and Frame them to protect them i oru my own hand. I think Washington theatres Are different from even the Best houses in Many other cities in the quiet and decorum of the audience and the absence of any Large door crowd made up of people who come to see the audience and not the play. Ladies come to the theatre with each other and without the need of other escort and nothing would be considered More unfortunate by the managers than to have this custom fall into Dis favor. Our audiences Are very varied for what Calls out one set of people will not attract another and course the Winter audiences and Sumner ones made up in the main of Dif Ferent cases. Still you would be astonished to find How Many society people like to drop in to summer opera if they ate in town. For my own part i have reached the Point where i care very Little what is going on inside the doors. I am often asked what the piece is and have to Stop a moment before i can collect my thoughts and answer it has made so Little impression upon my mind improved passenger equipment.
