THE NOBLE GENTLEMAN.

P. 154. Second note, last line but one. For "So in act v. sc. 2", read "So in act v. sc. 1."

P. 155. “Fifth Gent. You're fairly met, good Monsieur Mount-Marine.”—The old reading “faithfully" ought not to have been disturbed. Compare a passage in The Nice Valour, p. 323 of the same vol.;

"La-Nove. Now 'tis so well, I'll leave you.
First Bro. Faithfully welcome, sir.

VOL. X.

THE ELDER BROTHER.

P. 238. Note. I may add the following passage: "And now (for a Parenthesis) comes in mine Hoste," &c. Exemplarie Novels (from the Spanish of Cervantes), 1640, p. 16.

P. 241. First note.- -Compare a passage at the commencement of The Wisdome of Doctor Dodypoll, 1600;

P.362.

THE NICE VALOUR.

P. 301. "your English Countess]" Perhaps Godiva, the heroine of Coventry, is

meant.

[Exit La-Nove."

"And that faire artificiall hand of yours

Were fitter to haue painted heauens faire storie,
Then here to worke on antickes and on me."

The proper punctuation is,—

66

"thinking indeed

"Twill prove too great a benefit and help

For one that 's new set up; they know their way,
And make him warden ere his beard be grey."

For one that's new set up (they know their way),
And make him warden ere his beard be grey".

THE BLOODY BROTHER.

P. 426. "For the stay, &c.]" Mason's explanation is right on the whole; but

stay" is rather forbearance than delay :

"and some people haue

Some stay, no more than kings should giue, to craue."

Donne's Anat. of the World,-Poems, p. 249, ed. 1633.

VOL. XI.

THE TWO NOBLE KINSMEN.

P. 414. "desire to eat with her, carve her, drink to her", &c.-That Seward and Mr. Knight were wrong in making the alteration, " carve for her ", is proved by the following line of Beaumont's Remedy of Love, p. 483 of the same vol.,—

"Drink to him, carve him, give him compliment."
