Retitled 'Wapping Workhouse' in collected editions of the series 

'My knowledge of the general conditions of the sick poor in workhouses is not of yesterday,' Dickens wrote in 1866 to the Secretary of the newly-formed Association for the Improvement of the Infirmaries of London Workhouses: 'nor are my efforts in my vocation to call merciful attention to it. Few anomalies in England are so horrible to me as the unchecked existence of many shameful sick wards for paupers side by side with the constantly increasing expansion of conventional wonder that the poor should creep into corners and die rather than fester and rot in such places' (Pilgrim, Vol. XI, [late Feb 1866] pp. 164–65). Dickens's 'efforts' included the commissioning and publishing of dozens of articles in HW and ATYR on workhouse conditions, and also the writing of such powerful papers as 'A Walk in a Workhouse' ([HW, Vol. I, 27 May 1850] see Vol. 2 of [the Dent Uniform Edition of Dickens' Journalism], Item 45), 'A Nightly Scene in London' ([HW, Vol. XIII, 26 January 1856] (see Vol. 3 [of the Dent Uniform Edition of Dickens' Journalism], Item 45), and the present article.

Retitled 'Two Views of a Cheap Theatre' in collected editions of the series  

The 'cheap theatre' in question was the Britannia Theatre on Old Street, Hoxton, which had been entirely rebuilt by its owner Samuel Lane in 1858. On its former incarnation,the 'Britannia Saloon', Dickens had already reported in 1850 (['The Amusements of the People [i]' and 'The Amusements of the People [ii]', HW, Vol. I, 30 March and 13 April 1850] see Vol. 2 of [the Dent Uniform Edition of Dickens' Journalism], Item 41). For a comprehensive history of the theatre's construction and management, see Jim Davis's The Britannia Diaries, 1863–75 (1992). According to Dickens's former HW colleague John Hollingshead, the theatre became 'familiar to most theatrical people and to many others' through the publication of this essay (My Lifetime, 1895; Vol. I, p. 33).
