* Though it be uncertain whether this Interlude was Shakspere's King Henry VIII. or not, yet we have never heard of any other play, professedly written on the same subject; and have reason to think that our author's pero formance was produced during the reign of queen Elizábeth, on account of the compliment paid to her at the conclusion of it. ..

Nathaniel Butter was the publisher of Shakspere's King Lear. The particular cautions shown concerning the licence to print the present dramatick piece, might lead us to suspect it to have been Shakspere's, and that the sagacious Company of Stationers were of opinion that this compliment to the memory of the queen, might not prove very pleasing to her inglorious successor.

I Perhaps this is Marston's comedy of What You Will. I have a copy of it dated 1607. What You Will, however, is the second title to Shakspere's Twelfth Night.
