Notes
Mistaken identity: The authorship of “The Night that Larry was Stretched”, properly by Dr. Burrowes acc. Thomas Moore’s Diaries, is sometimes erroneously ascribed to him.

Samuel Whyte, ed., Poems Poems on Various Subjects [...] (1795) contains advertisement for Lady Borrowes's private theatre, 16 March 1790, with cast (see COPAC listing; copy in TCD Library).
