Checks and Tickets of Admission to the Public Theatres and other Places of Amusement.

No. 1. Red Bull Theatre. This Theatre flourished from about the middle of the reign of Queen Elizabeth until some time after the Restoration, and its history forms part of our present work. Two copper Checks are known —the one, engraved, for the "Upper Gallery," and another, similar, for "The Pit."

No. 2, 4, 12, 14, 15. Drury Lane Theatre. The five Checks engraved as used at this Theatre, are all of copper, and of different dates. No. 2. Obverse the head of Charles II. No. 4, has the bust of James II., and Maria D'Este his Queen, both looking the same way. The others are modern, having the reverse blank.

No. 3, 5. Duke's Theatre, Dorset Gardens. The Checks of this Theatre, on first opening, had a capital D, and the same character reversed with a Y central, surmounted with a ducal coronet, as acting under the patronage of His Royal Highness the Duke of York. No. 5, struck after the accession of the Duke to the throne, when the Queen became the patroness. The Checks are of yellow metal, and similar ones known for the "First Gallerie," and "Vpper Gallerie."

No. 6. Lincoln's Inn Fields Theatre. This Check is of brass, and having the head of King William in basrelief, supposed to have been struck as a compliment on the license being granted for the opening of this Theatre, under the management of Mr. Betterton.

No. 8. Goodman's Fields Theatre. The particular value of this Check, which is of copper, is from the obverse supplying a representation of the front of the Theatre when opened by Mr. Gifford in 1732.

No. 9, 10, 11, 25, 26. Covent Garden Theatre. No. 9 and 11 are of copper; 10 and 26 of brass; and 25 of pewter. No. 9 has the profile in bas-relief of the Duke of Cumberland, from a die engraved by the celebrated artist Pingo, and probably struck immediately after the suppression of the rebellion of 1745. No. 10 remarkable for a fine head of King George II. done by Kirk.

No. 13. Little Theatre, Haymarket. A copper Check used on Mr. Colman becoming proprietor of that Theatre.

No. 16. Pantheon. Plated on copper, and used during the period the Italian Opera was conducted there, under the management of Mr. O'Reilly.

No. 18. Bear Garden. A brass Check, supposed to have been used at some place of diversion where bears were exhibited under the proprietorship of N. Philipps.

No. 19. Marybone Gardens. A subscription ticket of mixed metal, having the reverse plain, and the obverse in bas-relief, for the admission of two to this once popular place of amusement. The price of a ticket, for the season, was two guineas.

No. 20. Swan Theatre. The initial letters S. T. it is conjectured, may be applied to the Swan Theatre. The original Check is of base copper cast in sand, or some porous stone, very rude in execution, and of sufficient age to support the present presumption.

No. 21. Grotto Gardens. The Grotto Gardens flourished for some years under the proprietorship of Mr. Finch, who appears to have been a free-mason, and obtained considerable support from the brothers of the craft. The Gardens were situated partly in Winchester Park, or the Clink, and partly in the parish of St. George, SouthwarkThe public house now known as the "Goldsmiths' Arms," had formerly the sign of "The Groto.". It is supposed the late favourite actor Mr. Richard Suett sung in public here for some time. The Check very coarsely executed in brass.

Theatre in Goodman's Fields. The whole of Goodman's Fields was formerly a farm belonging to the Abbey of Nuns, of the Order of St. Clare, called the Minories or Minoresses, from certain poor ladies of that order; and so late as the time of Stow, when he wrote his Survey in 1598, was let out in gardens, and for grazing horses. One Trolop, and afterwards Goodman, were the farmers there. But Goodman's son being heir by his father's purchase, let the grounds in parcels, and lived like a gentleman on its produce. He lies buried in St. Botolph's church, Aldgate.
