IN REMEMBRANCE OF THE LATE MR. DOUGLAS JERROLD.
COMMITTEE'S OFFICE, GALLERY OF ILLUSTRATIONS,
Thursday Thirtieth July 1857
My Dear Mr. Cooke.
I cannot rest satisfied this morning, without writing to congratulate you on your admirable performance of last night. It was so fresh and vigourous, so manly and gallant, that I felt as if it splashed against my Theatre-heated face, along with the spray of the breezy sea. What I felt, everybody felt. I should feel it quite an impertinence to take myself out of the crowd therefore, if I could by any means help doing so. But I can't - so I hope you will feel that you bring me on yourself, and have only yourself to blame.
Always Faithfully Yours
T.P. Cooke Esquire
