Catalogue Note

An attack on John Gay's Three Hours after Marriage, describing the play as an "attempt at once to debauch our taste, and corrupt our manners, to play a double game, and palm nonsense and lewdness upon us in the same piece..." The dedication, to the three managers of Drury Lane, is signed with the pseudonym Timothy Drub.
