Description

Excerpt from Four Comedies of Terence: Translated, and the Stage Management and Mode of Acting Them Set Down, as They Were Acted at Westminster School Comedy into the Eunuohus his own Comedy. Bpt that he had known that these Fables were [made Latin ones before, flmt be positively denies. But if it is not lawful to Others to make use of the same characters, how is It more lawful to describe servants running about, to make matrons good women, and harlots bad women, aoparasite voracious, a soldier brag ing, a child to be superimposed, an old man to be decei've through a servant, and to love, hate, and suspect? Lastly, nothing is now said (in these days) which may not have been said before. Wherefore it is just, that you should understand, and pardon, if new writers do those thiiigs, which antient writers have already done. Give ye your attention, and apply your mind with silence, that ye may know thoroughout, what the Eunuchus may mean (to lay before you).
