A Lover by Proxy! or My Daughter Sir! is a title for a play found on page 398 of F.C.L. Bosman, 1928[1] and it is cited as being "the Comedietta, in two Acts, by D.Boucicault, Esq., A Lover by Proxy! or My Daughter Sir! (Planché)".

This is clearly is a confusing misprint and the plays involved were actually two one-act farces - A Lover by Proxy by Boucicault (1842) and My Daughter, Sir!, or A Daughter to Marry by Planché (1828), not a two act farce by two authors ostensibly performed in Cape Town on Wednesday 29 May 1850, by the 73rd Regiment (Garrison Players) in the Garrison Theatre, Cape Town, with The Lancers (Payne), and My Young Wife and My Old Umbrella (Webster).
