This fact was recognized more than n century ago and luckily for "The Rivals," It has, with few exceptions, been presented by most capable artists during the last several generations. The comedy has never been in Btich artistic hands as during Its long association with the famous Jefferson family of actors. Five successive gen- ancrs In "The Rivals" a labor of love and each and each generation profited by the experiences of Its predecessors. The late Joseph. Jefferson considered It his greatest comedy. He loved his part In the play as he loved any one if his children. When lie relinquished the role of Bob Acres to his son William W., he bestowed on the boy aj far greater honor than any king ever! left a prince. The son Is zealous in' the proper presentation of the possl-1 lillltles of Hob Acres as any mother] ever was of her child's best efforts.! Another son. the elder Jefferson's j namesake, Joseph, assumes the cliar-j acter of Sir Lucius OTrigger, the fa-1 vorile part of the late. W. J. Florence.; His Interpretation of Sir Lucius possesses that certain something only] found In the work of a histrionic gen-j Ins. The work of I be two younger!
