P. Cooke" ; and Douglas William Jerrold's Black-eyed Susan.
Biographical/historical: "Mr. T.P. Cooke, who, during the Race Week, will appear in those characters by the performance of which he has so repeatedly crowded to excess the Theatres Royal, Drury Lane, Covent Garden, Dublin, Edinburgh, and every great theatre throughout the United Kingdom! Our dramatic critics have all agreed that various representations of Mr. T. P. Cooke are at once so vigorous, so chaste, and so true to nature, that they despair of ever witnessing the same characters embodied, in a like degree of perfection, by any other actor."
