This is a scarce original autobiography of William Dwyer, reformed minstrel (tenor) and temperance advocate. Dwyer tells his story starting with his debut at age 14 on the "mimic stage" at the Fishamble St. Theatre in Dublin. He then goes through many of his subsequent engagements and his ultimate entree into Christian Temperance work. Paper wraps.
