What Was Said by Actors of Note at a Recent Benefit

Much of their talk was commonplace, of course, but at length somebody spoke of an account, published that morning, of Richard Mansfield's attempt to represent the dual character of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. The former is a good and rotund man in the story, you will remember, with a benevolent sort of face, while the latter is a wizened scoundrel, with an ugly, evil visage. It was said that Mansfield had undertaken to show the contrasted faces by means of contortion alternated with calm placidity. In the slang of the age, he "mugged it."
