By Dr. J. H. Randolph Ray

The corners are bumped. The front end page has a dedication to the previous owner written on the inside page. The pages are yellowed and tanned and the edges of the pages are worn. The rest of the book is free of markings.

It is the official place of worship of hundreds of actors. It is the historic shrine where one goes to see stained-glass windows commemorating the face of Edwin Booth, Joseph Jefferson, John Drew, Richard Mansfield; and bronze tablets to Stephen Vincent Benet, Will Rogers, O. Henry. It is the haven where the hungry were fed in the days of the breadline. For the last third of a century it has been my life...." - Foreword from My Little Church Around The Corner
