If you introduce your new home to friends or family, this can also help you build an entirely new connection to the house. You may also invite your new neighbors to get to know them — and start making new memories! Hi Lisa! Wow this is amazing how you sent me your beautiful website with How to say goodbye when i wrote the song. Wow, great post. I remember when I was kid, it was hard when my parents decided to move.

My dad did that thing where he would mark my growth on the side of the door. Many memories. Very beautiful, thanks for the post.

Having a party before moving AND a housewarming party, that should do the trick nicely to feel like the memories are celebrated and also looking forward to your new home. I just recently moved from my childhood home and it was very difficult to throw out all those memories and try to move efficiently in a big move. Wow, it must have been hard! Beautiful post.

50 Essential Memoirs - Barnes & Noble Reads — Barnes & Noble Reads

Quin's tragedy was strutting, pompous, languid, tiresome, and wanted spirit. Garrick's Ranger, would have an equal claim at present with Mr. Quin's Falstaff; for he was much the best any living person has seen, as he had every requisite from Nature: And though Henderson had great merit, his Falstaff was much inferior, as all he did was the effect of study and art, having neither the person, the voice, nor the eye, in particular, for that part;—in each of these material points Henderson was deficient.

Now Quin, with a bottle of claret and a full house, the instant he was on the stage was Sir John Falstaff himself. Of the world he has all but its care; No load, but of flesh, will he bear; He laughs off his pack, Takes a cup of old sack, And away with all sorrow and care. But out of his particular walk he was ever bordering on the ridiculous:—His Richard was very heavy, labo rious, and unnatural, and it was then thought so; as I recollect reading a list of plays in a magazine for the year , where, in the catalogue of tra gedies and comedies there inserted, was the fol lowing line:— King RICHARD, by Quin.

Much hissed. Quin act it at the age of sixty? Cibber, all-elegance and neatness by his side as Monimia. The sight of the two ancient heroes of antiquity made such a contrast in the Quartetto, that it struck even my features at the age of eleven with risibility. Woodward assured me, that when Mr.

Garrick went with him to see Ryan's Richard the Third, meaning to be inwardly merry, that Garrick, on the contrary, was astonished at what he saw work ing in the mind of the ungraceful, slovenly, and ill-dressed figure, which told him more than he before knew, and which caused Garrick's bring ing to light that unknown excellence as his own, which in Ryan had remained unnoticed and bu ried. As a proof, those old written characters are what every young female fashionable candidate wishes to play; ask Mrs.

Abington and Miss Farren what characters they choose to give the first impression in? The expence for the necessary profusion of stage-dresses is enormous, but there is nothing real: Taste may be discerned. That this is the period for taste in dress will be readily admit ted; but the money expended, and all the true value, rests in the word taste. Thirty years ago not a Templar, or decent-dressed young man, but wore a rich gold laced hat, and scar let waistcoat with a broad gold lace;—as the miser says, "he carried an estate upon his back;" —also laced frocks for morning dress.

At that time, no more than two or three principal characters, at Covent Garden in parti cular were well dressed, and those not with any va riety as now. Woffington's wardrobe had only the increase of one tragedy-suit, in the course of the season, in addition to the clothes allotted to her, unless she indulged herself; and she had a new suit for Sir Harry Wildair, in which charac ter Mrs.

Woffington looked the man of fashion; and Mrs. Jordan sports now in Sir Harry one of the best legs in the kingdom. Sir Joshua Rey nolds is a judge of legs, and has, like Paris with his apple, given his decree on that said leg. I have seen Mrs.

Woffington dressed in high taste for Mrs. Not any plays throughout were ever dressed as they are now—there the pub lic enjoy a splendor indeed superior to their fore fathers. Also in the magnificence of theatres, the scenery and lighting are now beyond compare; but it is evident our grannies had an idea of what they did not possess, as may be proved by the or ders for scenery in Sir William Davenant's plays, Dryden's. Except in Mr. Rich's pantomimes, the public then had seldom any scenery that proved of advantage, so as to allure the eye:—But now frequently we have new scenery to almost every piece.

Stage-coach and Tavern Days

Foote and Mr. Colman, would now cut a very contemptible figure in most towns of England, and not fit to enter, after seeing Bath, Edinburgh, Bristol, Liverpool, York, and many other theatres. Indeed Covent Garden is not so complete in that department at least it was not so when I saw that theatre before the late alter ations. The upper boxes at Edinburgh are far preferable to those at London for seeing, and in deed, in that respect, are better than any theatre I know; and it has an advantage like Smock-Alley by the audience part being formed in a well-finished circle.

Drury Lane, like London-Bridge, has been much frittered and patched at very great expence; and, after all, the only way to repair will be to pull it down, and erect a new one:—which I understand is to be done, and I wish for health to see it finished. Thirty years ago Mr. Barry or Mrs.

Old Church Slavonic

Cibber would not have disgraced as they at that time judged their current London stamp for being paid in July in Birmingham coin on any account: In deed such would have been thought by their London patrons a most disagreeable and dis graceful exploit: And the Londoners will be asto nished to be truly informed, that now Mrs. Sid dons, Mrs. Jordan, and others, make their true golden harvest on their summer excursions out of the metropolis.

Bath, from its great fashionable resort and consequence, has of course an impro ving theatre; and though only one hundred miles distant from London, causes in the Londoners many a wishful look to honour Bath with five or six nights in the course of a season, and thereby secure a couple of hundred pounds: But those Bath managers act more prudently, as they never permit London, or any other actors, however the voice of fame may have exalted them, to perform a few nights only:—Mrs.

Great theatrical per sonages, who formerly used to look upon a city or town as a bore, now, on the contrary, in the sum mer grant they are commodious, respectable, and even alluring; and with great good manners, compliance, and condescension, will consent to tri fle away a few nights at such insignificant places: Even the Jordan herself, who at present reigns as our modern Thalia, has deigned to visit Chel tenham, Reading, Margate, Richmond, and Har rowgate, which places yielded great profits, sil ver medals and subscriptions falling at her feet in plentiful showers, and she as greatness knows it self acts naturally on such occasions:—Being earnest in her demands, I wish her every prospe rity, and hope she will accumulate—.

The consequence of these visitors, though it gratifies the pride of the audiences, not forgetting also the manager's own ostentation, in the principal theatres remote from the great city is not always productive, though it gives a glare to enterprise; therefore every ma nager out of London should watch his farm with as much fear and observance as a West Indian planter does a hurricane, which destroys his fine prospect, and he bestows three quarters of the year in hopes the fourth quarter's produce may make amends for devastation:—So the manager, with the little overplus gained, should never lay out what is so dearly bought in too lavish improve ments in a theatre; for the absence of the reign ing London favourite leaves a cold chill and om nious ill-fated blast on all theatrical culture for the year to come.

Indeed there are always people and money, where fashion and inclination prompt them to attend a playhouse, which, when not so, the theatre only obtains contempt, false pity, and less attendance. It is true, by these advantages which I have taken the liberty to mention, plays are wonderfully altered for the better: but was I asked, "If in consequence of such good fare, are not the audiences altered for the better also? I was lead formerly to believe, when I first began the mode of procuring principal performers from London, it would have given information to the people in general, and made more and more con verts to my conventicles; but there I was egregi ously mistaken, for people who are not blessed with affluent fortunes in the middling class of life, with proud minds and little souls, have but as much for pleasures as they can prudently spare; therefore if they expend in one week what would serve for a month for themselves and their fami lies' purposes, there is likely to be a drawback—besides its being unfashionable, and then all is over with a theatre:—For many go to a play as the fine lady says sometimes, because—Because why?
