      Within ‘The Sights of Glasgow’, Charles Watson, c1850:

      “Then there’s brave Nelson’s monument that’s in your spacious Green,

      Where lads and lasses go to court, and boys for fighting keen

      And coming nearer this a bit the Queen’s Theatre you may see

      Where they murder Shakspere night for the very smallest fee.” (Search ‘Queen’s Theatre’)
