First edition, a political drama by the future fourth Earl of Guildford, son of the Prime Minister, partly in verse; ‘the airs were composed by Miss Monk, a dilettante and very dilettante-like music it was. The language was bold and poetical, and written in elegant blank verse; but, owing to the inferiority of the music, it did not meet with unequivocal success’ (Kelly, Reminiscences, 1826). The comic sub-plot scenes, featuring John Bannister as Gam, are in prose.
