THE Author regrets that an inconfiderate disposal of the Copy Right of his Pieces, called The Son In Law, The AGREE ABLE SURPRISE, The Young QUAKER, The DEAD ALIVE, and PEIPING Tom; to the late Manager of the Hay-Market Theatre, prevents their appearance in this Collection*.

However, should those of his compositions, which he is here enabled to give to the Public, afford any gratification in the reading, it is derived from the kindness of MR. HARRIS, (Proprietor of the Theatre-Royal, Covent-Garden) in permitting the AUTHOR to Print them; the Copy Right of most of them, he also having purchased.

Had they been fold to a Bookseller, and consequently then Published, the Author would, by the laws respecting literary property, have had a right to print them at the expiration of fourteen years, a term now long elapsed.

To vi

To that Gentleman, for this signal instance of generosity, as well as for many other acts of friendship, the Author, thus Publickly returns his most sincere · and grateful thanks.
