For those wishing to know: In his book "Bohemian Days" Mackay makes many 
claims and tells many stories, carefully omitting enough details to make 
them unproveable.  I therefore followed up one of his claims, that he 
started a career in journalism by writing a review of T. W. Robertson's 
play "School".  This is Mackay's review, his account of writing it, the 
letters from the Times which occasioned it, and a review published prior 
to Mackay's.  The upshot is that this claim from Bohemian Days stands 

All the best,
Very hot England
