Following the large public attendance at a recent Old Bailey trial, Punch expects the Old Bailey to provide a programme of events 'after the fashion of that issued by the Directors of the Royal Italian Opera'. Gives a specimen programme which includes 'the celebrated / Professor Taylor of Guy's Hospital / And as the now very popular Farce of the / Plea of Insanity / is likely to have a very considerable run, the Managers will no doubt have frequently the pleasure of announcing the names of / Dr. Forbes Winslow, Dr. Conolly and Dr. Sutherland'.
