play in 3 acts was written by Eyre -it is founded on Dr. Moore's Zeluco-Eyre has foolishly changed the name of Zeluco to Salerno-the scene lies at Naples -Julia was in love with Waldenheim, but, in order to make a provision for her mother, she had consented to marry Salerno-Salerno neglects her, and passes his time with Cosenza-Cosenza artfully insinuates that Julia's attachment to Polwitz is of a suspicious nature-Salerno fancies that his child by Julia is really the child of Julia and Polwitz-Cosenza has a design on Le Tour-she endeavours to pass herself on him for Julia-in the 2d act Julia receives a letter-Salerno snatches it from her-he reads the first part of it, which excites his suspicions -he gives it to Signora Clementi to read the remainder-the remainder relates to himself and Cosenza in the 3d act, Eyre deviates greatly from Dr. Moore-Julia supposes that Salerno had killed the child-on the entrance of Salerno she rushes outSalerno hires some Lazeroni to carry off Julia-they carry off Cosenza instead-Salerno is not killed-but in order to restore Julia to happiness and liberty, Eyre dissolves the marriage, without a vast deal more of ceremony than Farquhar uses in the Stratagem-the child is preserved in the most improbable manner -Eyre has written the part of Signora Clementi with spirit and the letter-scene is adroitly managed -the rest of the piece has not much to recommend it—the foundation of this play was laid while Eyre was on the Bath stage-a Gentleman recommended him to introduce part of the character of the Braggard Captain of Plautus-not his military boasting, but his vanity with regard to women, which betrays

him into a serious scrape-Eyre left Bath abruptly, and having only a vague notion of what was intended, he patched up the trumpery character of Le Tour. 19. Munden acted the Deaf Lover.
