Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1868 edition. Excerpt: ...I well;' and then it will run thus; ' ' This rehearsal (Which fury imwcent, wot I well, comes in Like old emportment's bastard) has this end, ' 8ac.

Seward compares the present description with the well-known passage in A llfutsu/nu/rncr-.ZVight's Dream, act iii. sc. 2; P. 134. (41) " I am not" Walker (Ortt. Exam. &c. vol. iii. p. 343) marks this hemistich as imperfect. " Here we have another stage-direction in the old quarto and in the folio too, --' 3. Hea/rses ready.' " WEBER. P. 136.
