Excerpt from The History of the English Stage: From the Restauration to the Present Time: Including the Lives, Character and Armors, of the Most Eminent Actors and Actresses

Mr. Bettertoa long had the Stage under his Direé:lion, and he, undoubtedly, wanted no Abilities to dtfl:ittgttifl:o Merit, nor have I ever heard that he wanted Inclination to reward it. And as eminent as he was allowed to be, yet he thought it advifeable, and no way um worthy of him, to join with thofe who were profefled Players. And of late Years Mr. Boot/j, Mr. I/vzl/é:r, and Mr. Ciooer, as they were all eminent in their Profefl:ions, as Ac tors: their own Interei't, as well as the Horr our of the Stage, made them indufirious to fupport it in full Credit. The two former of thefe Patentees are dead, and fo is that Envy which purfued them in their Lives. We have now no Memory for their Failiogr, and only retain the pleafing Remembrance of their various Excellem'ier.
