The Grateful Servant.

This comedy was licensed by the Master of the Revels, on November 3,1629, under the title of the Faithful Servant; and given to the press in the following year: it was again printed in 1637, and, I believe, a third time in 1655. The original title is: The Grateful Servant, a Comedie. As it was lately presented with good applause in the private House in Drury Lane, By her Majesties Servants; with the motto:

'Usque ego postera Crescam laude recens.

It was ushered in to the public by eleven commendatory pieces of poetry, by Randolph, Massinger, Stapylton, and others; these have been already given.
