"invaded, on the sudden, by a Powerful Command, to prepare an entertainment
for the court, which was to be written, learnt, practised, and performed, in less time
than was necessary for the writing alone. True, it. was not performed, till some
months after the time first decreed, but that hapned from the discretion of those on
whom the dancing and musical parts depended, who found it required time to do
any thing in perfection; but I not knowing it would be so deferred, finished my
part within time first alotted me, which was scarce a month; not only for the play,
but the prologue, and songs, the nature of which I was wholly a stranger to, having
never seen any thing of the kind; and by these means, I was forced upon a brisk
dullness, writing quick, but flat. I was also confined in the number of the persons;
I had but seven allow'd me, neither more nor less: those seven to be all ladies, and
of those ladies, two onely were to appear in men's habits. Next, for my subject, it
was not, I confess, imposed upon me by command, but it was for want of time lo
find a better: For I had but some few hours allow'd me to choose one . . .

"Having made this little vidication of my self, I were now bound in gratitude,
(before I conclude) to record the due praises of those whose admirable performances
in their several kinds, lent this entertainment much of the praise it had; namely,
the singers, and the composer of all the musick both vocal and instrumental Mr.
[Nicholas] Staggins ... if the judgments of others, and those the most skilful too,
be not mistaken, Mr. Staggins has not only delighted us with his excellent com-
position, but with the hopes of seeing in a very short time a master of musick in
England, equal to any France or Italy have produced . . ."

teutsche sprache nicht so weibisch, und mit vocalen angefuellet sey, als die italiaen-
ische, solches gestehe ich gem; aber damit ist es noch lange nicht ausgemacht, dass
sie zur harmonie untuechtig sey . . .

"Es est gewiss von viel groesserer folge bey schau-spielen, dass sie in einer dem
