General Tom Thumb appeared at the Theatre Royal Canterbury, which was crowded to excess. The little General differs from most of the dwarfs that we have seen; his limbs are proportionate, and his manners very vivacious and pleasant. His dignified air—his personation of Napoleon, and other extraordinary characters —his variety of costumes—his fun and frolicksomeness in detailing his interviews with royalty—and the gallantry with which he kissed the ladies, were all exceedingly entertaining.
