Mister Ron's Basement #1760

We have dug up some little-known gems from Mortimer Thomson, better known to one and all as Q. K. Philander Doesticks, P. B.

From 1854, we have found an hilarious and a bit racy (well, for 1854, anyway) account of a theatrical performance by a well-known ham actor. It's called 'Doesticks Sees the American Tragedian.'

Time: approx twelve and a half minutes
