Excerpt from John Burton's Stage Yarns

While residing in Los Angeles, California, it has been my pleasant task to prepare for the public this series of stories, which I have tried to give as nearly as possible in the words of the narrator. I deeply regret that it is utterly be yond my power to reproduce them exactly as I heard them, for I cannot put on paper the unc tion with which they were delivered to me; the necessary accompaniment of unsurpassed facial expression and the contagious good-natured smile of this clever comedian are missing.

The greater part of these stories have never before been in print, and have come directly un der Mr. Burton's personal observation. He wishes, however, to give due credit and thanks for the few which have been told him by others, and which we have added to make the volume more complete. These stories are not confined to actors of note alone; many of them, in fact, the best of them, are told of people who have achieved small fame in the theatrical line; it is their mistakes and peculiarities that have called this book into existence.

You will find these Yarns of Actors Past and Present to be in keeping with the quaint, delightful - because unconscious - humor of the man who tells them. Annie B. Cooper.
