Seasonal Digest

As the autumn theatrical season began in 1858, the London Times reported on the progress of the Adelphi's rebuilding.  Noting, "the roof...will be put on within the next six weeks," the Times cited significant changes in the building's structure:  "The new building will cover a somewhat larger area than was comprised within the old house...The ground also will be excavated to a depth of ten or eleven feet below the original level, to get space required beneath the pit and stage" (September 8, 1858).  Architect T. H. Wyatt designed the building, and J. Wilson supervised construction.  According to the Era Almanack 1877, the total length of the new theatre was 114 feet, 6 inches. Its height from pit to ceiling was 57 feet.  The stage measured 56 feet deep and 63 feet, 6 inches wide, with a proscenium opening of 35 feet in height and 38 feet in width.  The house measured 48 feet from the back of the boxes to the proscenium.  With these changes, the Adelphi became "almost the largest minor theatre in London" (Times, December 22, 1858).

The approaching Christmas season brought the long-anticipated opening of the New Adelphi.  The December 22, 1859, edition of the London Times carried an extensive description of the theatre's new interior design.  Calling the Adelphi "the newest, and now the prettiest theatre in the metropolis," the reporter said it was "constructed with a view to the comfort of its audience, the richness of its decorations, and general splendour of its effect."  Noting the theatre's expanded size, he continued, "this space is so carefully and judiciously broken that the idea of space is entirely removed, and the audience see only a series of most graceful curves marking the line of the boxes, and the fronts of which are so decorated as to make them the richest and most effective portions of its internal architecture."  The interior designer used wrought iron and white and gold decoration in achieving this effect.  On the front of the first balcony was "a light and exquisitely wrought iron railing decorated with white and gold."  "Beautiful spiral cast-iron columns, with elaborate capitals in white and gold" supported the upper tier whose front had "white and gold decorations, with panels in bas-relief representing the figures of the Muses."  Above this, the gallery stalls also boasted sumptuous decoration "adorned in panels with medallion portraits of the chief dramatic authors."  The ceiling was decorated in "Genoese style," with "excellent paintings of the four seasons" adding to the illusion of a high dome.  Finally, "the proscenium, and the ceiling immediately over it, [were] covered with bold yet delicate traceries in white and gold."  The decorations were illuminated by "one of Stroud's patent sunlights" hidden "by an exquisitely formed chandelier...furnished by Defries and Sons."

The new theatre provided seating for members of all social and economic classes.  The Queen's box was situated on the west side of the proscenium, the Prince of Wales' box on the east.  There were two rows of seats in the first balcony, flanked by a row of boxes.  The gallery tier had gallery stalls and "the usual side galleries."  The theatre's "pit" level included a "part nearest the orchestra...railed off for three rows of orchestra stalls...Behind these are four rows of pit stalls."  The theatre seated fifteen hundred.

With the opening of the new building, manager Benjamin Webster instituted some new management practices, which evoked praise from the Times.  First, he lowered ticket prices.  Previously, they had ranged from 5/- for seats in the stalls to 1/- for gallery seats.  Now, while private boxes and family stalls cost two guineas and one pound respectively, seats in the orchestra stalls cost 5/-, balcony and dress circle 4/-, first circle stalls 3/-, pit stalls 2/-, pit 1/6d, amphitheatre stalls 1/-, and gallery, 6d. Also, the Times reported, "when a visitor books his seat at the box office he becomes its proprietor...and up to the very close of the performance it is retained for him without any further charge."

At the Adelphi's reopening, the Times predicted, "the fresh course on which it is entering will be as prosperous to its manager and popular with the public as during its best days of old."  The season commenced with the traditional Christmas pantomime, a farce called Mr. Webster's Company is Requested at a Photographic Soiree, and a revival of John Buckstone's Good for Nothing.  Other revivals included James R. Planché's The Invisible Prince, Taylor and Reade's Masks and Faces, and Buckstone's Flowers of the Forest.  Among the season's new offerings, Thomas Williams' Ici On Parle Français scored the greatest success with sixty-two performances.  It featured the Adelphi's newest comedian, John Toole, who had joined the company with the opening of the remodeled theatre.  Tom Taylor's The House?  or The Home?  also proved to be a popular new script.  The Times, evidently weary of Webster's heavy reliance on revivals, wrote, "A new piece, that is likely to achieve a permanent success, and to gain something like a solid reputation, has at last been produced at the magnificent theatre" (May 17, 1859).  It ran for fifty nights.

The season closed with benefits for William Smith, Paul J. Bedford, and Carter, relying on revivals of Victorine, The Wreck Ashore, and The Lottery Ticket to attract audiences.  The Athenæum noted that the Adelphi did not yet have a new artistic philosophy to match its new decorations:  "The performances at this house continue experimental; and we are yet left in doubt as to the course intended to be taken by Mr. Webster" (August, 27, 1859).

Title:The Second Adelphi Theatre 1858
Description:In 1858, Ben Webster demolished the theatre and constructed a larger, more elegant house in its place.  The architect was T. H. Wyatt, and the decorative work was executed by Frederick Sang and J. H. Parsons.  A new act drop was painted by Clarkson Stanfield.  John Willson built a wrought iron roof supported by iron stanchions independent of the brick walls.  Inside, the three circles were supported by widely spaced and slender-shafted iron columns.  Excavating the ground made it possible to have the pit below the street level, making room for the extra tier.  The gallery entrance was moved to Bull Inn Court.  The new theatre could seat 1,500 people, with standing room for another 500.  The interior was lighted by a Stroud's Patent Sun Lamp, a brilliant array of gas mantles passed through a chandelier of cut-glass.

THE NEW ADELPHI THEATRE.

We cannot but admire the energy with which Mr. Webster has prosecuted his arduous undertaking, notwithstanding many discouragements and some of those misadventures which architects are "heir to" and has brought it at last to a successful issue.  We congratulate him heartily upon the elegant edifice he has raised, and we congratulate the public, who in this new Adelphi will possess one of the most comfortable, nay, luxurious, theatres in the metropolis.  It is no slight task to raise upon the ruins of the defunct a new and more splendid structure in so short a period; and Mr. Webster's friends and admirers—that is to say, the whole public--will not be slow, we are sure, to recognise the zeal, energy, and tact with which, he has laboured.  May the new Adelphi be as prosperous in its generation as that ancient and famous Adelphi which Yates, Wrench, the elder Mathews, Reeves, and other choice spirits, immortalised! Under Mr. Webster's management, we know no effort will be spared to perpetuate its honourable distinction, and both dramatists and artists will find in him, as they have always found, a generous friend, a warm-hearted brother, and one of the most enlightened and persevering of the metropolitan managers.  Mr. Peter Cunningham, in his "Handbook to Modern London," pithily speaks of him as "having done more towards upholding the English drama than any other person now connected with the stage." This is an eulogium which everybody knows to be well deserved, and everybody knows, too, that it would be difficult to exaggerate his merits as an actor who has created for himself a series of remarkable and elaborately finished characters.

The new Adelphi will differ from the old theatre in many important points but above all in size.  The annexed plan affords at a glance a confirmation of our statement.  The eastward boundary of the old house, and the space allotted to the audience, are shown by dotted lines.  The site of the present theatre is about 70 ft. in breadth, and 107 ft. in depth.  The pit floor is now placed on a lower level and does not demand that difficult ascent formerly the opprobrium of the Adelphi.  Taking the pavement of the Strand as a permanent level, we find that the pit floor at the stall division is 2 ft. 9 in. below it; the orchestra floor, 3 ft. 9 in.; while the stage is 5 in, above it.  The height to the rim of the ceiling is 44 ft. 9 in.; and to the highest point, 53 ft. 9 in.

The accommodation afforded is superior to that in the old house--there being seats for 1400 persons.  The orchestra stalls will accommodate 74, the pit 565.  There are four rows of orchestra stalls, allowing 2 ft. to each seat.  The pit seats are 1 ft. 8 in. broad, and 11 in. deep.

The proscenium is exceedingly elegant in design.  Its width at the curtain is 35 ft. and its height 38 ft. being three feet wider than the Lyceum and nine feet wider than the Princess'.  The pit is so well arranged that comparatively few seats will be located under the boxes.  The dress circle is constructed on the balcony principle and will be open so as to admit of the display of the many-coloured dresses of ladies and increase the general effect of the interior.  The Queen's box, approached by a separate entrance from Maiden-lane, will be fitted up with more than ordinary taste.

To these particulars we may add a few passages from an article in the Builder, which deals with the minuter details of the plan:—

"The upper circle of boxes is reached from the corridor of the lower circle.  There are four staircases available for this communication, two of the number next the proscenium boxes serving also for those boxes and the orchestra stalls.  The way down to the stalls after an ascent from the Strand was unavoidable unless there had been an entrance contrived from Bull Inn-court.  There are three rows of seats in the upper boxes—little different from the stalls below.  They will seat 135 persons. In the gallery tier, there are two rows of stalls for 92 persons (without separate access) and three rows of seats besides the short benches in the angles and the recess over the principal staircase and saloon.  The ordinary seats on this tier are designed for 334 persons.  The slight depth of the gallery allows of a flat ceiling.  The circular part, or ceiling over the pit, rises from a rim of ornamented mouldings, slightly domical form, and is divided into semicircular and other compartments, which will be decorated by Mr. Sang; and the lighting will be by a sun-burner [gas chandelier] in the center, coming down, however, low enough to avoid disagreeable shadow.  The plasterers' work is in Parian cement, the decorations (of which we shall be better able to speak when the theatre opens) being on paper, to be pasted on.  There will be one saloon attached to the upper boxes and a reading-room opening from the corridor of the dress boxes.  The private boxes, it should have been mentioned, measure, in the clear, 14 ft.; or that may be called the frontage to the auditory; and in depth, with their saloons and passages, they occupy about 16 feet.  They will accommodate in all 80 persons.  The character of these proscenium boxes is given by fluted shafts or columns, which occupy the height of the two chief tiers, and are carried on piers or pedestals, and by the light metal shafts which mark the divisions between the two boxes on plan, in the case of those of the upper box and gallery levels (the shaft in the latter instance bearing arches, the spandrils enriched with trelliswork), as well as by the ornament—which appears to be, generally in the house, of the Louis Quatorze or French Italian character, sometimes called French Rénaissance in opposition to the Louis Quinze and the degenerate Rococo, were commonly, but erroneously, "Louis Quatorze." One of the main shafts at each side carries the elliptical arch of the proscenium, and the other will support a statue."

There has been ample provision made against alarm in case of fire.  There is an exit-way, five feet wide, from the pit into Bull Inn-court, with doors opening outwards.  There are similar openings above, as shown in the plan, at 4.  The entrances to the pit and boxes lead from the corridor, which opens into the Strand--the former marked B; the latter (by a long flight) marked A.  The gallery entrance will be in Bull Inn-court.  The box corridors are all "floored with stone," and reached by staircases of stone or slate.

We may add that the decorations of the theatre are marked by a refined taste, and present many features of novelty to which we shall allude in a future article.  The drop-scene has been designed by Clarkson Stanfield.  The architect of the new Adelphi is Mr. T. H. Wyatt, to whom the praise of having produced one of the most commodious theatres in London must be accorded.  The builder is Mr. Willson.

Mr. Webster commences his first season in his new home on Boxing-night with many old and some now faces.  We need but express our cordial wishes for his entire success, and our hopes that his energy and perseverance will be duly recognised by the public, for whom he has, during a long and honourable career, so assiduously laboured.  In bad but expressive Latin, Mr. Webster must permit us to cry "Floreat Adelphi!"

THE NEW THEATRE-ROYAL, ADELPHI.

The new Adelphi Theatre is to he opened on Boxing-night, and we are now able to give some particulars of the arrangement and construction of the building.  We append a plan showing the "auditory" at the level of the grand tier, as well as the difference between the old house and the new one.  The boundary of the site eastward in the old house, and the form of the auditory, are marked by dotted lines.  First mentioning (to allow of comparison with theatres lately described) that the ground (exclusive of the Strand entrance and the saloons, and of the dressing-rooms for which old premises in Maiden-lane will be retained temporarily) now averages a length of about 107 feet by a breadth of about 69 feet, and that greater space in height has been gained by placing the pit floor at a lower level, instead of at the height of an ordinary story above the Strand as in the old house.  We may go on to remark that the main alterations interesting in the question of theatre-planning, will be found to be those as to the width of the proscenium-opening in proportion to the "auditory;" the projection of the balcon, or stalls of the dress-circle, and the generally increased space—as appropriated mainly with reference to the comfort of the audience, to greater number of staircases of communication between the tiers, and to a gallery-staircase, with entrance from Bull-inn-court, in lieu of that which was reached from the entrance in the Strand.  Width of proscenium-opening, and advancing the front of the lower-tier boxes, have been noted by us as comprising what might be a desirable approach to the principle of the ancient theatre, in regard to the object of a good view of the stage.

Looking at some of the London theatres which best admit of comparison, the relative proportions of the proscenium-opening to the "auditory," may be gathered from the statement as under:–

  Adelphi Lyceum Olympic Princess's
  Feet in Feet in Feet in Feet in
Width of proscenium 35 0 32 0 27 2 26 0
Height of ditto 38 0 35 0 29 0 30 0

Whilst the width across the house, or between the boxes—44 feet in the case of the upper tiers of the Adelphi Theatre, that is to say, 5 feet 7 inches more than the Lyceum, and 11 feet 3 inches than the Olympic—as regards the grand tier, is considerably less in the Adelphi than the other buildings,—a difference of the greatest importance if our ideas have been correct.  At the same time, whilst the pit is not sacrificed,—since it would appear from the plan engraved, not only that the whole area is greater than that in the old house, but that even a less proportion of the seats opposite the stage are beneath boxes,—the height of the grand tier above the stage is less than in the other case.  For, taking the level which is that of the floor of the Queen's box (or the same as the lowest part of the balcon in the Adelphi Theatre), the dimensions are:  In the Adelphi, 7 feet 9 inches; in the Olympic Theatre, 9 feet 1 inch; and in the Princess's, 8 feet 8 inches,—the Lyceum, having the dimension 6 feet 11 inches.  To afford means of comparison in another particular affecting principle of plan, we may mention that the stage at the centre advances into the auditory, from the curtain line, at the Adelphi Theatre, 4 feet, whilst at the Olympic, 9 feet.  In the Lyceum Theatre the dimension originally was three, or four, feet, but it is now 1 foot 9 inches.  The alteration there is viewed as disadvantageous for operatic performances: whilst the 9 feet of the Olympic Theatre bring the "float" lights into an inconvenient position as regards the private-boxes.

The arrangement of the auditory of the Adelphi Theatre, it will have been understood, is not explained by the single plan given herewith.  There are three tiers (two boxes; and one gallery) above the pit level; in other words, there are four floors, as in the boxes of the proscenium, which boxes will form very important features in the effect.  The upper boxes and gallery are quite different from the lower boxes, both by the omission of the balcon, and by the form, on plan, of the box-fronts at the sides of the house.  In place of a convexity next [to] the private boxes where a shaft is marked on our plan, there is a concavity formed by producing the segment from the semi-circle of the different line of fronts up to the same point on plan, or a little beyond, whence the curve continues in contrary flexure, forming to the private boxes segments, rather than the curves shown in the case of those boxes—marked F and GG.  Considerable variety of effect results from this peculiarity added to the gracefulness of the lines themselves.

The depth of the stage from the back of the proscenium-wall is 55 feet, and the full width at the proscenium is 67 feet 6 inches, or [sic] inclusive of the property-rooms.  The space in the front of the curtain measures 58 feet on the longitudinal axis of the plan, by a width of 68 feet 9 inches on the transverse axis of the "auditory." The proscenium wall is of 9-inch brickwork, with piers of 1 foot 10 inches, and a similar wall divides the private boxes from the main part of the auditory.  The external walls are 1 foot 6 inches, all the way up— the roof being carried by iron stancheons from the ground, as mentioned in a former notice.

The box-fronts of the upper tier, with which the circle of the ceiling corresponds, are 44 feet 9 inches from the back of the proscenium-wall, measuring on the longitudinal axis of the plan; and between the box-fronts across the house is 44 feet, whilst on a parallel line, measuring from front to front of the private boxes, the width across is 35 feet 9 inches.  The box-corridors, which are all floored with stone, and reached by staircases of stone or slate, are 4 feet 9 inches, or 5 feet in width, in the narrowest part in each case.  The balcon projects 6 feet in advance of the iron columns supporting the tiers of boxes and the gallery.  The gallery has no columns; the ceiling (hung from the roof) being from its design, [is] supposed not to require the idea of support provided for in the case of the boxes.  There are two rows of seats in the balcon, and the remainder of the space is divided into fourteen boxes, which, from the arrangement of the divisions, may be treated as at once public and private boxes.  The edges of the divisions ramp back to the ceiling from the line of fronts of those boxes, with a profile in curves of contrary flexure, or giving somewhat the form of an inverted bracket.  This arrangement will contribute very greatly to the effect of the boxes viewed from one another and generally from the house; whilst the back seats are the same as those of private boxes in other theatres.  Another innovation deserving of praise is that intended in the front of the balcon, which is to be of open-work of some kind, so that the ladies' dresses may show through; though whether it will be popular may be a question.  The seats or stalls in the balcon are 1 foot 10 inches each between the centres of the divisions (two inches more than in the dress circles of the Lyceum and the Olympic) the space of each sitting in the other direction, or 3 feet, is greater by 9 inches than that at the Lyceum and by 6 inches than that at the Olympic, and the seats themselves are 1 foot 3 inches in depth as contrasted with the 11 inches of each of the other theatres.  The backs slope 4½ inches instead of 2½ and 3 inches.  The grand tier is calculated to hold (exclusive of the proscenium boxes) 128 persons—68 in the balcon and 60 in the boxes.

The upper circle of boxes is reached from the corridor of the lower circle.  There are four staircases available for this communication, two of the number next the proscenium boxes, serving also for those boxes and the orchestra-stalls.  The way down to the stalls, after an ascent from the Strand, was unavoidable, unless there had been an entrance contrived from Bull Inn-court.  There are three rows of seats in the upper boxes—little different from the stalls below.  They will seat 135 persons.  In the gallery tier, there are two rows of stalls—for 92 persons (without separate access) and three rows of seats besides the short benches in the angles and the recess over the principal staircase and saloon.  The ordinary seats on this tier are designed for 334 persons.  The slight depth of the gallery allows of a flat ceiling, so that the defect of apparent suspension, if it do exist, cannot be said to be at all equal to what we noticed in a theatre at the east end of the town.  The circular part, or ceiling over the pit, rises from a rim of ornamented mouldings, in slightly domical form and is divided into semicircular and other compartments, which will be decorated by Mr. Sang; and the lighting will be by a sun-burner in the centre, coming down, however, low enough to avoid disagreeable shadow.* The plasterers' work is in Parian cement; the decorations (of which we shall be better able to speak when the theatre opens), being on paper, to be pasted on.  There will be the one saloon attached to the upper boxes, and a reading-room opening from the corridor of the dress boxes.  The private boxes, it should have been mentioned, measure, in the clear, 14 feet; or that may be called the frontage to the auditory, and in depth, with their saloons and passages, they occupy about 16 feet.  They will accommodate in all 80 persons.  The character of these proscenium boxes is given by fluted shafts or columns, as shown in the plan, which occupy the height of the two chief tiers, and are carried on piers or pedestals, and by the light metal shafts which mark the divisions between the two boxes on plan, in the case of those of the upper box and gallery levels (the shaft in the latter instance bearing arches.  The spandrils enriched with trellis-work), as well as by the ornament--which appears to be, generally in the house, of the Louis Quatorze or French Italian character, sometimes called French Renaissance in opposition to the Louis Quinze and the degenerate Rococo, more commonly, but erroneously, "Louis Quatorze." To these matters, however, we must return.  One of the main shafts at each side carries the elliptical arch of the proscenium, and the other may support a statue.

The pit area will be divided into seats of three classes,— orchestra-stalls, pit-stalls, and ordinary seats.  The orchestra-stalls, of which there are four rows, 3 feet from back to back of seats, are as under, in comparison with other theatres:—

  Adelphi. Lyceum. Olympic.
From centre to centre of divisions 24 inches. 20 inches. 21 inches.
Depth of seat 16 inches. 16 inches. 15 inches.

They will accommodate 74 persons.

The other seats in the pit-floor are, we believe, 1 foot 8 inches from centre to centre of divisions.  In the Olympic, they are 1 foot 6½ inches.  The width of seat only is 11 inches as compared with 9½ inches in the Olympic and 8½ inches in the Lyceum: the distance of the seats from back to back is 2 feet 1 inch, the same as in the Olympic.  They will hold 565 persons.

The whole house will accommodate 1,408 persons seated.  There is a 5-feet exit-way from the pit into Bull-inn-court, with doors opening outwards.  Above are similar fire-escape openings—as marked L on our plan.  As to details of plan affecting some questions which have been taken up in our pages, we confine ourselves on the present occasion to simple description.

The entrances to the pit and boxes lead from the Strand corridor, the former below the loggia marked by B, the latter in a long flight, as shown at A.  Judging from the drawings, the piers panelled with enamelled slate, the archivolts carried on trusses composed with figures of children, and the balustraded loggia, which will be occupied by ladies waiting for carriages, will form a very effective combination.

The dimensions of height necessary to complete our present account may be given from the datum level of the Strand pavement.  The stage at the front is 5 inches above that level and the orchestra floor 3 feet 9 inches below it.  The floor of the orchestra stalls may be taken at 3 feet below.  The entrance corridor to the pit rises to 12 inches above the datum, or from the Strand, whence the floor descends by a slope of 1 foot 9 inches in 36 feet, to 2 feet 9 inches below the level, at the division from the stalls, which is about 19 feet from the front of the stage, the orchestra being 6 feet 6 inches of that distance.  The stage rises to 1 foot 9 inches at the back, by a slope of 3/8 inch in 1 foot.  The heights of the tiers of boxes, measuring to the floor line, which corresponds with the top of the lower series of mouldings of the box-fronts, are respectively 7 feet 9 inches to the grand tier, 11 feet 6 inches thence to the floor of the upper boxes, and 9 feet 6 inches to the gallery floor: whilst the private boxes on the gallery tier are 9 feet 6 inches in the clear height.  The height to the rim of the ceiling over the pit is 44 feet 9 inches and that to the highest part 53 feet 9 inches.  The Queen has a distinct entrance from Maiden-lane, passing above the stage, as shown by the letters N and M.  Maiden-lane is considerably above the Strand level.  Over M are the chief property rooms, in two floors, carried with the "fly" which projects from them, by a strong truss, formed with head and sill, struts and braces (12 by 9), and suspension-bolts, arranged as queen-post trussing along with diagonal bracing and inter-tie of similar scantling.  The painting-room is opposite and is an ordinary "fly," with queen-post trussing.  There is a stage entrance from Maiden-lane.

The building is remarkable, as we have before observed, for the application of iron in modes which are altering the structural character of this class of buildings: whilst decoratively, besides the right treatment of the material in the shafts, the use of riveted iron has readily allowed of that sinuosity of character, so to speak, which we have described in the plan, and which, in section, is equally shown in the girders bent to the forms of the boxes, sometimes in the reverse direction to that of strength, as it would have appeared on some data not of this age.  The roof is of wrought iron, riveted in parts, and is carried by the stancheons, as already mentioned.  There is a difference between the trusses over the auditory and the stage,—the rise of the dome of the ceiling in the former case being provided for.  There are in all eight principals about 13 feet apart.

Mr. T. H. Wyatt is the architect; Mr. J. Willson is the builder, and Mr. Pasfield is the architect's clerk of the works.

We shall have another opportunity, when illustrating the appearance of the theatre, to say that we heartily wish Mr. Webster success in his new house.

* Could not a reflector be so arranged as to give the light mainly to the stage or the house as might become necessary?

SCENE FROM "THE BORGIA RING" AT THE.

ADELPHI THEATRE.

The stage of the new Adelphi Theatre affords improved facilities for those scenic effects by which the management of Mr. Webster has been distinguished.  Advantage was very properly taken of the opportunity on presenting a new drama to the audience.  It is likely, we think, that the play of "The Borgia Ring" was accepted for the sake of the one scene that forms the subject of our illustration.  The picture speaks for itself, and, as it is an exact representation of the stage-scene, our readers may form some notion of the capabilities of the arena that allows of such a display of vastness in the columns of the wrecked Druidical temple and so grand a perspective in the starry sky.  The point of the scene taken is where the guilty hero of the story is pointing out to his victim the ready-dug grave that he had designed for her in case of her refusing his criminal demand--to surrender for destruction the will by which he was disinherited.  Modern audiences require pictorial illustrations to dramatic arguments, and Mr. Webster will do well to select the sites of celebrated places for such purposes.  They are not only pleasing but instructive and confer an air of reality on the story and business of theatrical representations.  The scene before us is well worth a visit from the public on its own account, quite apart from the merits of the piece in which it occurs.
