Cartoon, Mr James Willing and the Ghost Featured Authors Print

Cartoon, Mr James Willing and the Ghost

Cartoon, Mr James Willing, Jun, is busy writing another stirring drama. Our artist has caught him at that moment when the "ghost" comes in. James Willing was actually a pseudonym for John Thomas Douglass (1842-1917), manager of the Standard Theatre, Shoreditch, London, and it is not clear whether the younger one existed or was simply just another pseudonym, to avoid Douglass's name appearing as the author of too many plays.
