William Harrison Ainsworth : Jack Sheppard

Statement of a juvenile offender: "I have been five times in prison. I have been as the Sanspareil and at all the theatres... I am sure had I never known the theatres I should have been quite a different character at this day. I have heard 'Jack Sheppard' performed; I was very fond of it; I had his life, but some boy took it from me; most boys have his life."

Century: 1800-1849     Reader/Listener/Group: T.A      Print: Book
