in with a resolution to kill his Uncle, but finding him at his prayers,
he says he will not do it, lest he should do him a piece of service
and send him to Heaven.

We pause here to say that not a few latter-day impersona-
tors of Hamlet have taken this view and omitted the
soliloquy. In his closing, encomiastic sentences the critic
contrives to make neat allusion to the defection of the band:

Till you came upon the stage to let us know that the music
would not attend you, I never thought of it; as it was formerly said
of Milton's poetry, that it was so sublime and grand in itself, that it
needed not the embellishment of rhyme, so can I say of you in the
part of Hamlet, that the satisfaction I received from thence was so
!2;reat, that music could not have added anything to make it more
complete than it was. With this I conclude, that if you find any-
thing here that you think worthy of your observation and practice,
the end I proposed will be fully answered ; if not, yet I shall still
remain your constant well-wisher and admirer.

With these and many similar oral compliments lingering in
his mind, Garrick had no reason to regret his first visit to
Dublin. Small wonder that he returned for a whole season
to the fascinating city by the Liffey only three years later.

Appendix II
The Oldest Known English Playbills

(Vide ante pp. 80-81).

Further search having been made at my instance in the Verney
archives, I am pleased to say that in the nick of time the old bills
have been discovered, and that Sir Harry Verney, with rare courtesy,
has permitted me to make photographs of them for reproduction.
Owing to the fact that the bills are inaccurately described in Mr.
Alfred J. Horwood's calendaring of the Verney Papers in the
Historical Manuscripts Commission Report of 1879, it came as an
agreeable surprise to find that they are four in number, not three.
This mistake arose through assigning All For Love and Theodosius
to the one bill. I had myself originally suspected some such con-
fusion in connexion with the two plays, but later on my suspicions
were allayed by Malone's statement as cited on page 81, note I.

Another fact unrevealed by the Report is that the bills deal with
two theatres, Drury Lane and the Queen's in Dorset Gardens.
But since they all run in the one mould and belong to the period
of 1692-4, it is requisite to bear in mind that they were issued
by the one theatrical organization. After the union of the two
companies in November, 1682, London, while continuing to
possess two theatres, only boasted a single troupe of players until
April, 1695. Acting, for the most part, took place at Drury Lane,
but occasional performances had to be given at Dorset Gardens to
propitiate the adventurers. The following is a summary of the
details presented by the various bills.

(1) Henry the Second King of England, at Drury Lane on
Wednesday, 9 November (1692). " Never acted but once." Size
of bill 6J inches by 3J; size of printed surface 3§ inches by i£.

(2) The Indian Emperour ; or the Conquest of Mexico by the
Spaniards. Drury Lane, 30 November (1692). Size of bill 7 J
inches by 3J; of printed surface 3f inches by if.

(3) All for Love, or The World Well Lost. Queen's Theatre,
Dorset Gardens, Wednesday, 9 May (1694). Size of bill 6 inches
by l\\ of printed surface 3 -J inches by \\.

Appendix II 241

(4) Theodosius, or the Force of Love. Queen's Theatre, Dorset
Gardens, Tuesday, 12 June (1694). Size of bill 6 inches by 2^-;
of printed surface 3 J inches by 1 \.

(1) This is now the oldest extant English playbill and the third
oldest known bill in Europe. 1 Since it indicates the second perform-
ance of Bancroft and Mountford's tragedy, my date (ante p. 81) for
the production of the play — derived from a contemporary news-
letter transcribed in one of the Historical Manuscripts Comm. Reports
— is slightly astray. Everything now points to the fact that Henry II
King of England v/2& first produced on 8 November, 1692. 2

(2) With the exception that the original has the mis-spellings
" Wensday" and "Emperour", this bill has been correctly given
by me (from the Historical Manuscripts Comm. Report) at p. 81.
Allowing for necessary changes of theatre, dating and play-title, the
formula is the same in all. One notes that the hour of performance
is not specified.

(3) Dryden's tragedy, All for Love, dates from December,
1677, when it was produced at Drury Lane. Dorset Garden
Theatre ceased to be called the Duke's, and became the Queen's,
on the accession of James II in 1685. This bill bears on the back
and front some writing believed to be in the hand of Sir Ralph
Verney, together with the date " May, 1694." This affords a clue
to the date of the bill, for 9 May, 1694, fell on a Wednesday.

(4) Lee's tragedy of Theodosius was first produced in 1680, and
was so frequently revived that some caution is necessary in dating
this bill. However, the "Vivant Rex et Regina" at the end
apparently limits it to the reign of William and Mary, and 1694
is fairly conclusive seeing that 1 2 June in that year fell on a Tuesday.

To eyes habituated to the amplitude of the latter-day day-bill
what will appear remarkable about these bills is the meagreness of
their information and the tininess of their size. The music-lover
was left to discover how best he could that three out of the four plays
announced had the extra attraction of fine vocal and instrumental
music by Purcell. If the bills were used indifferently as poster
and as handbill one cannot well see why they should have been so
limited in size. That they were delivered at the houses of aristo-
cratic patrons of the play their preservation in the Verney archives
clearly attests.
