First Reading

There is no play by this title among the published works of the Duke of Newcastle, or by anyone else writing at that time that I can find. L&M suggest the play Pepys saw by this name may have been one for which Newcastle had only partial credit, and may have been the one John Evelyn's wife mentions in a letter of 10 February 1669 as "one of my Lord of Newcastle's, for which printed apologies are scattered in the assembly by Briden's order, either for himself who had some hand in it, or for the author most ; I think both had right to them." http://www.ebooksread.com/authors…
