•'That it was indeed written by Shakespeare, it cannot be faid with candour that there is any
external evidence Jt all : iomething of proof arises from resemblance between the ftile ot his
earlier performances and of the work in queftion ; and a more conclufive one yet from
confideration of the time it appear'd in, in which there was no known writer equal to luch a
play." Capell.

"If the play is not Shakspeare's, as the English critics maintain, then truly it is a disgrace to
them not to have done anything to rescue from forgetfulness this second Shakspeare — this
twin brother of their great poet." Ulrici : Shakspeare's Dramatic Art, 1846, p. 457.

Historical Play, supposed to be written by William Shalcspeare. London :

The Advertisement says: "This Play is supposed to have been written by Shakspeare during the
short period between his retirement into the country and his death, in 1616, and about ten
years after the discovery of the Gunpowder Plot. The reasons of it not being published in
his lifetime are sufficiently obvious."
