the day.
  3. Thursday.   Drawing, writing &c.    To the �Lyceum�
in the evening with Brown,  Waud & Robinson.   The

authors and managers to him, thereby representing himself un-

piddling loans of folk.     /     The play of the Evening Coleman�s
�Poor Gentleman.�    One of those standard pieces, with some sterling
stuff and a monstrous deal of conventional puppet twaddle in
them.  Brougham played Ollapod, and well.
