M'Coy nodded, picking at his moustache stubble.
- O well, he said. That's good news.
He moved to go.
- Well, glad to see you looking fit, he said. Meet you knocking around.
- Yes, Mr Bloom said.
- Tell you what, M'Coy said. You might put down my name at the funeral, will you? I'd like to go but I mightn't be able, you see. There's a drowning case at Sandycove may turn up and then the coroner and myself would have to go down if the body is found." (U5.162)
- Yes, Mr Bloom said.
- Tell you what, M'Coy said. You might put down my name at the funeral, will you? I'd like to go but I mightn't be able, you see. There's a drowning case at Sandycove may turn up and then the coroner and myself would have to go down if the body is found." (U5.167)
- I'll do that, Mr Bloom said, moving to get off. That'll be all right.
- Right, M'Coy said brightly. Thanks, old man. I'd go if I possibly could. Well, tolloll. Just C.P. M'Coy will do.
- That will be done, Mr Bloom answered firmly." (U5.172)
Wonder is he pimping after me?" (U5.188)

The Illustrated London News (July 1st, 1899) comments: "Mrs. Bandmann Palmer confesses to having studied Shakspere's tragedy from the age of fifteen, but only summoned up courage to appear as the distraught Prince since 1895. Since then she has played it some 270 times, and bids fair to hold a woman's record in the role. Making little or no pretence at aping masculinity, she offers her Hamlet rather as a psychological study than a vivid impersonation. For hours before Mrs. Bandmann Palmer appears in the part, she communes with herself in solitude."
In addition to Mrs. Bandmann Palmer, numerous female actresses played Hamlet, most famously the French tragedienne Sarah Bernhardt (1844 - 1923). This photo was taken by Lafayette during her performance of Hamlet (in a French version by Eugene Morand and Marcel Schwab) at the Adelphi Theatre in 1899. Other Hamlet 'male impersonators' included Miss Winetta Montague, Miss Clare Howard, Miss Hanette Steer, Miss Mariott, Miss Louise Pomeroy, Miss Charlotte Compton, Miss Julia Seaman, and Miss Oliph Webb (ILN 1899).
Kate Josephine Bateman (1842 - 1917) was an American actress. She was born in Baltimore, MD, the daughter of Hezekiah Linthicum Bateman (an actor and theatrical manager) and an actress mother. A child prodigy, she started on stage around the age of 5 in Louisville, KY, together with her sister Ellen. Between 1851 - 1854, they toured under the management of P.T. Barnum. After she outgrew her childhood career and matured as an actress, Kate achieved great success in the title role of 'Evangeline', a dramatization of Longfellow's poem (1860), and as Julia in Sheridan Knowles' 'The Hunchback' (1862). Her most famous role however was Leah in 'Leah the Forsaken', a play adapted specifically for her by Augustine Daly from a melodrama then popular in Vienna. Despite harsh reviews by critics, the play opened to an enthusiastic public in New York (1863). It remained Bateman's primary dramatic vehicle for many years. After 1892, she led a school of acting in London, and played minor roles. This CDV shows Kate Bateman as Leah around the time Rudolph saw her in London.
