THE MAYOR OF GARRATT.

This diverting comedy came from the pen of Mr. Samuel Foote; and at the Theatre Royal in the Haymarket, in the year 1763, it was first brought before the Town.

Major Sturgeon was meant to expose to deserved ris dicule a well-known fishmonger, and a man of war, of boasting memory. The charaéter was allowed to be drawn with spirit and point; nor was the satirist less happy in exhibiting his picture on the stage, than he had been successful in preparing it for that end, in the

study.

In the Major, of the Elder Bannister, that veteran of the scene, presents his audience with a fine imitation of Foote's voice and manner.

The Jerry Sneak, of his song is, beyond comparison, the best the stage has witnessed since the days of poor Tom Westoa.

T. B,

25th March.
