Foster, Charles, 1833-1895.  Bertha, The Sewing Machine Girl.
ca. 1871-1890s?
Phys. Desc:

Manuscript play script, violet-colored ink and pencil, Part I (paperbound legal-size lined sheets), and black and violet inks, Part II (same format).  The first physical part on the verso of the first internal sheet has a list of characters in pencil.  Part I: Act I [scene 1.], [8] pp.; scene 2., [6] pp.; secne 3., [9] pp. (began on bottom of last page of scene 2).  Part II: Act IV., scene 1, 13 pp.; "Scene 5th," pp. 14-22. 

This manuscript reflects major revisions, esp. in the second part, and Act/scene IV, in a different hand in black ink.  There are also changes in pencil, crossed-out passages, and page order changes. 

This manuscript does not include the name of the author, though this was gleaned from other sources, such as Thomas Allston Brown's "A History of the New York Stage...," vol. 1, pp. 136, 149 and 151, and Worldcat.
