mons: Torrent=Munden : Andrew Bang=Emery : Solomon Gundy=Fawcett: Henry = C. Kemble : Barford = Kemble: Heartly = Chapman: Hog. more = Waddy: Fanny = Mrs. Gibbs : Mrs. Glas. tonbury = Mrs. Mattocks : Amy=Miss Waddy :acted 10 times the scene lies in Yorkshire-Torrent comes to take possession of an estate which he had purchased-Sir Larry, who had ruined himself by gaming, comes to Lord Alamode's house to avoid his creditors_Lord Alamode is in London Andrew Bang and Mrs. Glastonbury are his gamekeeper and housekeeper — Jonathan Oldskirt had treated Fanny with great kindness—she is hired by Torrent for his housekeeper-Oldskirt comes with her into Yorkshire to see her settled in her placeshe prevails on him not to go with her to Torrents, but to wait at an inn for some few hours—they part -Fanny goes by mistake to Lord Alamode's instead of Torrents — Oldskirt goes to Torrents, and is much disturbed when he cannot see Fanny-Fanny is found at Lord Alamode's—she proves to be the daughter of Barford—and the play ends with the union of Henry and Fanny—this C. by Colman Jun. is on the whole a poor piece—the merit of it consists in the characters of Sir Larry, Andrew Bang, Mrs. Glastonbury, and Oldskirt—the part of Torrent, who from his indiscriminate charity on all occasions, gives the title to the play, is a caricature —that of Solomon Gundy is trumpery_Barford is superlatively dull, and the clap-traps are contemptible.
