      Men Frejlif nævner en enkelt af sine egne anmeldelser, hvor han “fornærmede den mest fremragende af teatrets skuespillere, en ældre frikadelle, der ikke var sen til at hævne sig.”
      But Frejlif mentions one of his own reviews, in which he “insulted the most brilliant of the theatre's actors, an elderly ham, who was not late to take revenge.”

      Hvis nogen ved ukunstneriske Midler bejler til Galleriets Bifald, bliver han en Galleriskuespiller; er han simpel og har en daarlig Udtale, men alligevel gør nogen Lykke, kaldes han, som Skuespiller for den tarvelige Borgerklasse, en Frikadelleskuespiller eller forkortet alene en Frikadelle.
      If anyone woos the applause of the gallery by unartistic means, he becomes a gallery-actor; if he is simple and has poor enunciation, but still has some success, he is called, as actor for the mean citizenry, a ham-actor or, abbreviated, simply a ham.
