From the Hans Christian Andersen biography "The Life of Hans Christian Andersen. Day By Day", written by DPhil Johan de Mylius:
24 December 1836
A comedy at the Students' Association in the evening. HCA had adapted a French one act piece, creating a vaudeville in five acts (not printed); Souffleurens Benefice... (The Souffleur's Benefice...) HCA himself played one of the lead roles in the performance, despite having influenza and needing to be fetched from and returned home in a carriage.
