Douglas William Jerrold
Douglas Jerrold was a successful journalist, playwright, humorist and editor, eventually helping to create the great Punch. Among his most successful plays was Black Eyed Susan, which made his name.

Though his health, never good, became increasingly difficult as he got older, he never the less made many friends, including Charles Dickens, and had a great reputation to the end for his wit and good humor.
