      John Wilkes would go south to Richmond, to join Ford's stock company at the old Marshall Theatre for the 1858–59 season. More work as a supe awaited “J. B. Wilkes,” but his wages this time would be better than in Philadelphia: $440 for the season, the same as his older brother earned in a week.
