at theatre 7.10.1799 adv Perry (Alkmaar)

In the GD website the play record for this day is blank, it should be Romeo & Juliet by William Shakespeare, and Naval Pillar by Thomas James Dibdin (at Covent Garden). A battle between the British & French took place near Alkmaar on 2.10.1799 resulting in a British victory, the town of Alkmaar was taken on 4.10.1799. The journalist James Perry may have had some interesting news of it
