Sample text

His Satyr Against Brandy, a broadside, was published in early 1683 (Luttrell dated his copy 20 February that year). Not until the spring of 1684 was Haines cited as acting in London. Perhaps he did not find the new United Company to his liking and left town for a time. The Life tells us that Joe acted briefly at Windsor and that he spent one summer in Hartford as a mountebank named Signior Salmantius, using as his Merry Andrew a chap he called Hayns. ) Haynes who showed a motion of "The Prince's Ball and Prospect" in Norwich in 1683 and 1684.

After his Italian adventure Haines returned to England and waited on James IIwhich would mean he came back before the end of 1688. The Life implies that upon his return from the Continent Joe practiced as an attorney and preached among the Quakers before returning to the stage. In 1688 theatrical references to Haines reappeared. " Joe must have been true to his word and returned to his wife. " In The Reasons of Mr. Joseph Hains the Player's Conversion & Re-conversion (1691) it was explained that Joe had become a Catholic on Malta on the advice of an Italian friend, to cure a tumor on his left arm, but that he had gone back to being a Protestant, since Protestantism had come back in fashion.

During the rest of the season he played Dwindle in The Country Innocence in March 1677 or earlier, Harlequin (perhaps Joe was the first English Harlequin) in Scaramouch on 5 May 1677, and Sir Simon Credulous in Wits Led by the Nose in mid-June. Though the records do not list Catiline as having been performed in 1677, the Life contains an anecdote concerning it that suggests it may have been acted that year, when Charles Hart was managing the King's Company at Drury Lane (a less likely year for the incident would be 1668, when we know the play was given).
