This theatre advertisement announced the popular British comedy "Our American Cousin" at John T. Ford’s theatre on 10th Street. Employees handed out playbills in the street to increase ticket sales. This printing alerted patrons that the show was a benefit for “Miss Laura Keene.” The well-known, English-born actress and producer would share in the proceeds from ticket sales for the April 14, 1865, performance.
