About Mustapha (Roger Boyle, Earl of Orrery)

Interesting that in 1665, our critic Mr. Pepys found the play not good, but two years later in his January 5, 1667 entry, he declared Mustapha "a most excellent play for words and design as ever I did see." He admitted to seeing but not remembering the play from the last go round. Guess it was much improved!

Good point Martin. Was backgammon played in England at that time? Interesting to see that Sam has formed an alliance with Penn on the privateer. Seems that aligns their interest against Batten.

Does anyone know if Sam loses his access to the leads? The suspense is killing me, but I don't want to read ahead.
