  It was all bosh about the impecunious John
Brougham having a theatre built in London.
He was playing at the Princess�s, for Bourcicault
in 1863, when I renewed my acquaintance
with him, at a tavern, after a night�s per-
formance.   Bourcicault had the Adelphi for
awhile and, when producing The Octoroon
displayed both the Union and Confederate flags
over the theatre.    The wily little beggar also
printed the Latin motto of �Trojan and Tyrian
are to me the same,� on the lop of his play-
bills.
