The celebrated George Villiers, Duke of Buckingham, made some considerable alterations to it, and in that state it used to he frequently acted; hut the licentiousness of that nobleman's pen rendering the Play improper for representation at this refined period, further alterations became necessary ; and these have been made, with much judgement, by the great ornament of the English Theatre, Mr. Garrick.
