Edward Stokes, from one the wealthiest families of Philadelphia, often impoverished himself in the illicit casinos of New York City. Associated with James Fisk in a business and cohabiting with Fisk’s former mistress, he contrived with her to bring various suits for monetary awards against the Prince of Erie. When Stokes was indicted for blackmail on a charge by Fisk, he declared, "This is the end!" This drama is part of the Gouldium, a series of plays on the life and times of Jay Gould. As in most of these plays, there are seven scenes of dialogue and seven choral episodes of reporters.
